There will be restricted movement in Viti Levu from today.
Ministry of Health Permanent Secretary, Dr James Fong says this is not a lockdown but there will be restricted movement across Viti Levu from 7 tonight until 4 am Monday.
Dr. Fong says during this time only movement for essential purposes will be allowed.
He is urging people to stay at home and to only move if there is an urgent need to.
“You don’t leave your home at all, that’s a curfew. So if you are found walking around at 2am, you get arrested. Essential movement is what I defined previously, you want to go to the pharmacy, you got a medical problem that you need to sort out, you urgently need food, and you go quickly but you come back quickly. But if you are seen loitering, with a group of boys playing rugby or sitting in the grounds having a carton of beer, you will be stuck.”
Dr Fong says Fijians are advised to adhere to all necessary protocols to ensure everyone is safe.
