The 10 pm to 5 am curfew will continue and mask-wearing in public remains mandatory.

During a press conference in San Juan, Puerto Rico’s Governor, Wanda Vazquez, said that in addition to these measures, public transportation including trains and buses will resume service next week, while ferries will be allowed to only take tourists to the island of Culebra.

“We cannot lower our guard. We are going to relax some of the restrictions but we cannot be confused, it’s gonna take a while before we could go back to our normal lives,” Vazquez told local reporters.

Puerto Rico, which has 3.2 million people, has so far reported over 28,000 confirmed COVID-19 cases, more than 28,000 suspected ones and more than 750 deaths from the virus.
