St Kitts and Nevis (WINN): As St. Kitts and Nevis gears up for the reopening of its borders, a new EC$500 ticket is being introduced to force compliance with the wearing of masks in public places.

New COVID-19 regulations announced Saturday (August 8), in the evening, included provisions for the EC$500 fine for people who refuse to comply with the mandatory wearing of face masks in public.

Police Superintendent Cromwell Henry, at Saturday evening’s NEOC briefing, explained the process and the impact of new regulations for days of restricted operations.
