New measures to control movement within the containment areas are expected to be announced in the COVID-19 briefing this afternoon.

This means that those who had containment passes and curfew passes, will have to reapply to the Health Ministry, which says it will be very strict from now onwards.

Health Permanent Secretary, Doctor James Fong says he expects to announce more on this in the presser.

The Fiji Police Force has confirmed that it is not issuing any more passes, and passes issued until yesterday will be null and void.

This comes hot on the heels of questions being raised about why most vehicles were allowed to pass through containment areas with passes, after companies and individual provided reasoning as essential services.

From the announcement today, the following containment checkpoints will not allow people to come into a different containment zone.
