There will be seven initial static Community Advisory Points deployed at key locations across the island. Drivers will be stopped and they, along with any occupants of their vehicle, checked against a list of those who have been issued restrictions by the Health Dept. 

Any persons who appear on the list and have no valid reason for being on the road, will be instructed to return to their residence and to follow the requirements that have been issued to them by the Health Department.
