“Regarding last night’s curfew. The Bermuda Police Service has reported that there were no curfew breaches last night. This is excellent news because this indicates that as a country, we are taking this matter seriously.

“The Bermuda Police Service had officers positioned around the island together with nine members of the Royal Bermuda Regiment on patrol. I am pleased that we did not have any curfew violations and I encourage everyone to do the same again tonight.”
