PHILIPSBURG--A Ministerial Regulation signed this week by Justice Minister Anna Richardson has given police officers and ministerial inspectors the power to stop gatherings that violate social-distancing measures.

According to the regulation, a police officer or an extraordinary police agent (in Dutch, buitengewoon agent van politie) is authorised to terminate events and public gatherings if patrons are not maintaining at least two metres distance from each other. It is also forbidden to participate in these kinds of events.
