SOE hours hurting late-shift commuters

Published:Saturday | October 5, 2019 | 12:06 AM

THE EDITOR, Sir:

St Catherine residents who work outside of the capital often have an issue getting public transportation between 9 p.m. and 11 p.m. in order to return home. The state of emergency (SOE) implemented in this area in St Catherine, with its imposition of earlier lockdown times, is adversely affecting some workers on the late shift.

On the one hand, persons gave their opinion on this matter and said that what the Government is doing makes a lot of sense.

On the other hand, the lockdown period is way too early for persons travelling from remote places. All that people are asking is that the Government extend the time for them to get home safely to their families.
