It appears that even criminals are sharing concerns over COVID-19, as in the Northern Division there was almost no reports of serious crimes in the district on Sunday. 

Despite this, officers maintained patrols in the various communities to ensure that persons were not congregating at bars and clubs. 

It was noted that several persons had to be cautioned for liming near some bars and in parks, however, no arrests were made. 

Citizens were once again asked to not congregate in any large numbers, and it was once again reiterated that persons who violate Public Health Ordinances on the COVID-19 issue could now face a $50,000 fine and/or six months’ jail under current legislation.
