Times of Suriname - - SHOWBIZZ -

Ber­nard­dorp on Wed­nes­day clo­sed the fi­ve roads that lead to this Amer­in­di­an vil­la­ge lo­ca­ted in the Pa­ra Dis­trict. Doro­thea Pau­ja­li, se­ni­or mem­ber of the tri­bal coun­cil, told Ti­mes of Su­ri­na­me that the de­ci­si­on to clo­se the roads was ma­de to pro­tect the vil­la­gers against CO­VID-19. Gu­ards ha­ve been put at the Ma­roe­ni­, Voor­braak, Cal­li­, Zwaanand Aal­school­weg. Pau­ja­li poin­ted out that the vil­la­gers ta­ke turns gu­ar­ding the check­points on the­se roads. “The youths are ea­ger to get a turn at gu­ard du­ty. Both men and wo­men are de­ploy­ed at the check­points. The gu­ards get food from the other vil­la­gers. The tri­bal el­ders and the vil­la­gers agree that the vil­la­ge had to be clo­sed to keep pe­o­p­le who might be in­fec­ted with CO­VID-19 out. “The po­li­ce, fire de­part­ment and sup­pliers of goods are gi­ven per­mis­si­on to en­ter the vil­la­ge. The vil­la­gers al­so are not al­lo­wed to lea­ve the vil­la­ge af­ter 6 pm. If vil­la­gers re­turn to the vil­la­ge af­ter 6 pm. they must ha­ve a good rea­son for being la­te. “They must pro­ve that they we­re at work”, said Pau­ja­li who ma­de it clear that the vil­la­ge would stick to the strict me­a­su­res.
