The new law, which will come into effect tomorrow, is designed to protect the elderly from exposure to the virus. It generally prohibits the elderly, from leaving their place of residence, unless they are going to purchase food, medical supplies or to work.
Her Majesty’s Government of Gibraltar have said it has been overwhelmed with the number of people who are coming forward to volunteer their assistance during this time.
