The CNMI Department of Public Safety (DPS) has noticed a slight increase in vehicles driving through the roadways claiming that they are heading to or from work during curfew hours.
To better aid officers in on-the-spot verification, DPS is asking businesses who are operating during the curfew hours to have employees carry their work identification as they are making their way between work and home. Businesses are asked to provide a point of contact that is reachable during the hours of 7:00 p.m. – 6:00 a.m. to validate employees who are on the roadways due to work schedules.
DPS will continue to conduct mandatory traffic stops on vehicles utilizing the island’s roadways during the curfew hours.
DPS asks the public for their patience during this sensitive time. As part of the Governor’s COVID-19 Task Force, and in consultation with the public health advice from the Commonwealth Healthcare Corporation, DPS will continue to join CNMI efforts in protecting the health and safety of the residents of the Marianas.
