Puerto Rico Governor Wanda Vazquez is re-closing businesses including bars, movie theaters and casinos as Covid-19 cases mount.

Speaking Thursday in an address to the island, she also said she is extending a 10 p.m. curfew, rolling back restaurant capacity limits to 50% and banning social groups and sunbathers from the island’s beaches.
