In an effort to enforce the health protocol announced by the Ministry of Health to curb the spread of the new wave of COVID-19 in the country, the joint security has shutdown the Stryker Funeral Parlors with immediate effect until otherwise ordered.
According to Police Inspector General Patrick Sudue, during the evening hours of Thursday, July 1, 2021 at 3:00 while routine patrol was ongoing by members of the Joint Security, it was observed that the funeral home was conducting a funeral service with over 50 persons in attendance, which violates the government’s 20 person mandate for those converging in public places, including funeral homes.
Inspector General Sudue noted that the funeral home will remain closed to the public until a fine of US$200 is paid to the government’s revenue.
Hon. Sudue warned that the LNP will leave no stone unturned in ensuring the full implementation of the COVID-19 restrictions as announced by the Ministry of Health.
He urged school administrators, religious leaders, motorists, passengers, and pedestrians to take serious the measures announced by the Ministry of Health, adding that the Joint Security will remain very robust in ensuring compliance of the health protocols.
