From today, the curfew hours will be from 7pm until 4am for all of Viti Levu.
This has been confirmed by Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama in a statement.
He says now that we have fully vaccinated 40% of our target population, we can move the start time of the curfew from 6pm to 7pm.
Bainimarama says once we fully vaccinate 50% of our target population, the curfew start time will be 8pm.
He further says fully vaccinating 60% of our target population will allow us to start the curfew at 9pm and lift the containment area borders in Viti Levu.
Bainimarama adds at the 70% threshold, the curfew will start at 10pm and once we fully vaccinate 80%of our target population, the curfew will start at 11pm.
The Prime Minister says throughout this gradual rollback, the end time of the curfew will remain 4am.
Bainimarama says he knows that a curfew no matter what time it begins is not normal.
He stresses these are not normal times.
The Prime Minister has assured Fijians their goal is to fully restore freedom of movement and association.
He stresses the decision to lift the curfew altogether can only be taken when we have sustained time periods with very few deaths due to the virus.
Bainimarama adds just the same, other relaxations, including the re-opening of certain businesses and allowances for social gatherings, will be announced in step with the best available science.
