Members of the public are making their own emergency passes, presenting them to the authorities and are even transferring them to relatives and friends.

As a result, the Royal Barbados Police Force is urging all citizens and residents to carry picture identification during the curfew.

“The Royal Barbados Police Force reminds you that it is an offence to be outside your residence during curfew hours unless you fall in the category of persons that have been officially exempted and have applied for and granted an Emergency Pass. Any person found on the streets or other public places without legitimate authority will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law,” a media release said.

The curfew will be in place until the morning of April 15 unless it is extended by Government.  It is one of the measures put in place to curb the spread of COVID-19.

Barbados has recorded 56 cases, with six recoveries and one death. (PR/SAT)
