Speech Island Governor Rijna September 30th

Kralendijk – Dear citizens of Bonaire,
Yesterday I informed you by means of a pre-recorded statement about the new measures that apply from today. Because I had to attend the island council meeting, there was no opportunity for the press to ask questions at the time. Today, at the end of this meeting, there is plenty of room for this.
I already indicated yesterday that we have arrived at these new measures on the basis of thorough analysis. We looked at number of infections, clusters and places where infections took place. Based on this, we have been able to introduce more targeted measures. This means that for some locations less strict measures apply. Because of the many infections in the workplace, it is important that people work from home as much as possible.
I have noticed that there are people that doesn’t think that the measures taken go far enough, for example because they are concerned about the health of their children and parents. There are also people who would like to relax the measures, for example out of fear of their income. I have a lot of understanding for both sides. Let’s keep talking to each other and look for solutions together. I will keep you informed of developments and measures as much as possible.
The analysis used to arrive at the choices are thus presented by Dr. Marian Luinstra-Passchier. It will provide an analysis of the figures for the past period. She will also discuss the number of new infections, the clusters and the places of infection.
Finally, I would urge you to abide by the measures, because it is the responsibility of all of us to be corona smart!
