    Re: SBH-Related Coronavirus Information

    Here are the deconfinement plans, as published by the Préfecture, in English. The swimming piece is not what is presently allowed on SBH, so either there are new rules, or the rules vary slightly between SBH and St Martin.

    Kevin, I don't think these are the rules for St Barth - for example churches here are opening next week... and boating and fishing are okay as of next week as well as I understand...

    The following text, translated by Google, was included with the above update:


    [Covid 19] Coronavirus information
    Health point of May 16, 2020

    A new case in Saint-Martin with 40 cumulative cases of coronavirus confirmed by PCR test and 33 people declared cured by infectiologists.

    This new case shows the persistence of sporadic cases on the territory continuing to call for the greatest vigilance even in this period of release from confinement. This patient is currently hospitalized in Guadeloupe. The contact investigation is underway.

    In addition, a patient was hospitalized last night at the Saint-Martin hospital. He is a partially Dutch-diagnosed patient who was in segregation at home. He was therefore taken care of for another health problem.

    Finally, two other patients have been hospitalized in the Covid unit of Marigot hospital and are awaiting results.
    Since Monday, 180 PCR tests have been performed for a total of 501 tests.

    No new cases in Saint-Barthélemy, with a total of 6 cumulative cases of coronavirus cases confirmed by PCR and 6 people declared cured by infectious diseases. A total of 97 PCR tests were performed.

    Let us continue to be vigilant for the resumption of activities in the presence of the virus: respect the barrier measures so as not to favor new chains of contamination. The strategy to fight the epidemic to avoid a second wave is based on the following 5 actions:

    Respect for barrier measures and recommendations for gradually resuming activities
    Prescribing PCR tests when in doubt
    Investigations of contact persons around a positive case
    Isolation of COVID-19 sick people
    Epidemiological monitoring of the epidemic

    Let us not relax our efforts against Coronavirus but also dengue: containment, barrier measures, destruction of the breeding sites.

    Let us continue to be vigilant for the resumption of activities in the presence of the virus: respect the barrier measures so as not to favor new chains of contamination.

    Re: SBH-Related Coronavirus Information

    From the Sint Maarten Daily Herald:

    https://www.thedailyherald.sx/island...ntain-controls

    Dutch side to cease border controls for St. Maarten, French side to maintain controls


    PHILIPSBURG--Dutch St. Maarten has decided to cease controls at the border and allow for the free movement of residents from French St. Martin to Dutch St. Maarten, however, French St. Martin says it will still maintain its controls for persons wanting to enter the French territory.

    Prime Minister Silveria Jacobs said, after deliberation during a Council of Ministers' meeting on Friday, May 15, that it was decided to properly contain the coronavirus COVID-19, leading to a decrease in the number of COVID-19 cases on the both sides, as well as the bonds that exist between the people, it is no longer necessary to maintain the border controls and restrictions of movement between the two sides.

    As of Sunday morning, which is a non-movement day, the Dutch side Police Force will no longer control the internal borders of St. Maarten. The container which was placed by police force at the Oyster Pond border to minimise the number of borders requiring control, will also be removed on Sunday. The police force will be refocusing its energy on de-escalation measures, and on ensuring that safety and security is maintained during this process as businesses re-open in Phase 2 on Monday morning. Jacobs said the police force will continue to maintain the night curfew which will be from 9:00pm to 6:00am as of Monday evening.

    “Just as before the State of Emergency, the Dutch side of the island will no longer require waivers. As one small 37 square mile island, we have tried our utmost to synchronise measures with our northern counterparts to protect the population from the spread of this virus, at times causing some stress to our citizens with family and economic ties on both sides. We see no need for this any longer as the COVID-19 cases are well under control, and it is time to normalize even further. As our businesses reopen, more persons will need to access their business, or place of work, making this extra task unreasonable,” Jacobs said.

    Collective Prevention Services (CPS) community outreach testing campaign will continue this weekend and next weekend. However, during the week, normal movement is allowed to allow persons the opportunity to earn a living and get our economy restarted while upholding the guidelines for safety of employees and clients.

    “After discussions with our French counterparts on Saturday morning, where they were updated of the decision of the Council of Ministers, it has been confirmed by Madame la Prefet Feucher that the French gendarmes will maintain the controls as they require additional time to evaluate whether their containment efforts via community testing have been successful. As this is the case, our French counterparts will continue to require waivers to allow movement to French St. Maarten,” said Jacobs.

    “In discussions with President Gibbs and the Collectivite, I have been informed by President Gibbs that he has contacted the Minister of Overseas Territories Annick Girardin and has advised her to also lift the border controls due to the decision taken by the Council of Ministers of St. Maarten in an effort to synchronize the measures on both sides of the island as border control is a competency of the state.”

    Jacobs said, “Our population is much more aware of the dangers of the virus and will continue to practice the guidelines to be out in public; wearing a mask at all times, keeping a social distance of two metres and practicing proper hand hygiene frequently in order to avoid a second wave. Our behaviour will determine the success of our de-escalation of measures. There are times, unfortunately, when our different systems cannot synchronize, as such we will continue to meet and discuss best practices moving forward and do our best to foster cooperation as we de-escalate measures and continue to fight the spread of COVID-19.”
