Traffic restrictions between Saint-Martin and Sint Maarten in place until April 15 | SOUALIGA NEWSDAY

SAINT-MARTIN (MARIGOT) – Since March 2020, 23, lockdown measures have been taken to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus and save lives. Unfortunately, still too many people do not follow the instructions and are allowing the disease to spread, the Office of the Prefecture of Saint-Barths and Saint-Martin said.

For this reason, the Prefecture and the government of Sint Maarten have decided to strengthen travel restrictions on the island.

Traffic between Saint-Martin and Sint Maarten is limited until April 15, 2020.

Going to Dutch Sint Maarten from French Saint-Martin will be strictly limited to the following reasons:

– Going to your workplace if telework is not possible.

– Getting around for an urgent medical reason.

Cross-border workers must be in possession of their proof of professional travel signed and signed by their employer as well as their certificate of travel.

The transport of goods remains allowed to move between the French and the Dutch part of the island.
