The curfew / toque de queda has been changed again. It seems that we are in recovery and the Covid-19 virus is getting more in control. So, since we have been good Dominicans and are, somewhat, following the rules they are giving us a break with the curfew by adding a few hours to our freedom time.
The Government of The Dominican Republic has relaxed the curfew for the next 15 days (March 3-17).
The decree 133-21 states that the curfew will be from 9 PM to 5 AM Monday to Friday. Saturday and Sunday will begin from 7 PM to 5 AM. As in the past, there are three hours of free transit.
*Spaces intended for sports practices, such as gyms, must operate with 60% of their capacity and with previously established hygiene and physical distance measures.
*Places of consumption of food and beverages must also allow 60% of their capacity and the tables must not exceed six people and strict application of protocols must be followed.
*Religious activities are allowed three days a week, keeping within 60% of the capacity of the church.
*Mass activities and events remain prohibited, while inspectors from the Ministries of Public Health, Tourism and Sports will be appointed to ensure compliance with sanitary measures.
The new provisions are focused on the economic reactivation of the Dominican Republic and the guarantee of the health of the population.
