Dominicans are now free to go about their daily business anywhere in the country without having to worry about rushing home to meet curfew.
That’s because the final curfew that remained after Hurricane Maria devastated the Eastern Caribbean nation on September 18 has been lifted.
The first island wide curfew was imposed shortly after the storm as police sought to prevent looting, but the hours were subsequently shortened. Then, in October, the curfew was lifted for most of the island. Only the capital Roseau and its environs were still under curfew.
