Curfew to start from 8 tonight

The Health Ministry has confirmed that the curfew on Viti Levu will start from 8pm tonight and the finish time remains at 4am.

This is based on 50.9 percent of eligible adults receiving their second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama had earlier announced that once we fully vaccinate 50% of our target population, the curfew start time will be 8pm.

The Health Ministry says while the change of the curfew hours means more time for shopping and carrying out other essential activities, they advise the public that other health protection measures remain.

They say restrictions on social gatherings, leaving your house for essential travel and continuing to practice COVID-19 safe measures of wearing a mask, regularly washing your hands with soap and water or a hand sanitiser, practicing safe physical distancing of two meters and covering your cough and sneeze is still critical for protection against COVID-19.
