Bonaire is dealing with increasing infections, which, according to Lieutenant Governor Edison Rijna, is forcing the government to take new corona measures.
On the island with about 20,000 inhabitants, 210 infections were registered on Thursday. The source of half of the latest infections is unknown. At the same time, more than 16,000 people over the age of 18 have been vaccinated once and 14,255 people have been vaccinated twice. Of the young people between the ages of 12 and 18, 744 have been fully vaccinated.
To prevent further infections, the government is asking employers to let their employees work from home as much as possible for the period between November 27 and January 3. Everyone who receives visitors must do so outside, for example on the balcony or terrace. People are allowed to come together in groups of up to ten people.
As of Saturday 27 November, it is mandatory to wear face masks in public indoor areas. People with a contact profession such as hairdressers must also wear a mouth cap from Saturday. Dancing and singing at events, or in the catering industry, is no longer allowed for the time being.
