The Health Ministry has confirmed that highly-controlled movement into Viti Levu’s six containment areas will be permitted in private vehicles, taxis and pre-selected buses that operate at half capacity.
It says minibuses will not be allowed to travel across containment area borders.
It is being stressed by the Ministry that all drivers and travellers must wear masks and have the careFIJI contact tracing application installed with Bluetooth turned on.
The Health Ministry says drivers who enter a containment area must drive directly to the place of residence for the traveller, and return to the containment area border once the trip is complete.
It adds that this is one-way travel exclusively available to those who are currently stuck outside of the containment area in which they reside.
The Ministry says this is not a mechanism to allow travel for funerals or other events.
Those who move into a containment area must stay there.
One-way movement will be allowed for individuals in non-containment areas travelling into containment areas as well as individuals residing in one containment area who need to move to another.
The Ministry stresses that movement from containment areas into non-containment areas, however, is not allowed at this time.
