GOVERNOR Ralph DLG Torres on Tuesday emphasized the importance of complying with the new Covid-19 directives.

The directives have reimposed temporary restrictions to safeguard the Commonwealth until Sept. 6.

These  include curfew hours from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m.; requiring businesses to open from 4 a.m. to 9 p.m. only; prohibiting gatherings of more than 10 people; prohibiting social gatherings at public parks and beaches; limiting businesses and church services to 50% of their initial maximum capacity; and closing all in-person school instruction and activities until further notice.

"We've always treated [this] pandemic…as high risk…. Our low numbers show that the system is working," he said.

"In terms of protecting our community and protecting each other, not just our community but also our private sector has stepped up.

"As a community, we've stuck together, despite the differences that we've had. I encourage and I thank everyone to continue to [work together] as we fight this pandemic.”

Torres said, "All of the decisions that we've made, whether it's controversial, whether it's economically devastating — we've always made them based on the best interests of the community's health. That has always been a priority."
