The Ministry says drivers who enter a containment area must drive directly to the place of residence for the traveller, and return back to the containment area border once the trip is completed.

This is one-way travel exclusively available to those who are currently stuck outside of the containment area in which they reside. .

Individuals are allowed to travel from non-containment areas into containment areas as well as individuals residing in one containment can move to another however movement from containment areas into non-containment areas is not allowed at this time.

FBC News visited the borders this morning and noticed long line of vehicles trying to go out of Suva containment zone and others trying to get in.

Some of those trying to go out of the Suva zone from Delainavesi had to get out of their vehicle during the heavy downpour in order to provide their details to those officers manning the border.

The same was noted for the Makoi border.

Hundreds of people were lining up at the Viti Mini stand in Suva today in hopes of catching a ride out of the Suva containment area to their home despite the rain.

There was no bus service this morning as the Permanent Secretary had earlier said that only private vehicles can move across.
