Amendments were made to the Emergency Powers [Covid-19 Shelter in Place] Regulations 2020 related to co-parenting, alcohol and tobacco wholesalers being allowed to distribute, fishermen & farmers, laundromats and more.

This comes after the initial Shelter in Place was extended to May 2nd, as the Government seeks to stem any spread of the Covid-19 virus, and the Regulations detailed below are operative effective today, April 20th.

The regulations states, “These Regulations, which amend the Emergency Powers [Covid-19 Shelter in Place] Regulations 2020, may be cited as the Emergency Powers [Covid-19 Shelter in Place] Amendment [No 2] Regulations 2020.
