COVID-19

Nationwide curfew in effect from Monday

Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama revealed in parliament that the curfew will be in force as part of the preventative measures over COVID-19.

A nationwide curfew from 10pm to 5am daily will be in effect from Monday.

Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama revealed in parliament that the curfew will be in force as part of the preventative measures over COVID-19.

Bainimarama told parliament the step is being taken because Fijians are not taking seriously the government’s advisory on restricted movement.

‘We are not afraid to ramp up these containment measures if we feel the Fijian public isn’t taking this crisis seriously. When it comes to the types of activities and behaviours we’ve discouraged to stop the spread of Coronavirus like non-essential travel, close contact and large gatherings, too many Fijians think that when the sun goes down the rule stops. That’s why today, I’m announcing a nationwide curfew from 10pm to 5am every night, everywhere in Fiji.

Bainimarama says there is far too much physical socializing and unnecessary travel between 10pm and 5am.

‘If you’re out during these hours, unless it’s for work or another life-sustaining purpose, the police will direct you straight home. We’ll be announcing the full details of this curfew soon.”

The curfew will come into effect on Monday night.
