Qauia Settlement in Lami will be on a 48-hour lockdown until 4am Thursday 24th June 2021.

The Ministry of Health says the aim of the lockdown is to conduct rapid screening, tracing, swabbing and quarantine or isolation of cases of interest in Qauia Settlement.

Permanent Secretary for Health, Doctor James Fong says this exercise is an opportunity to check for COVID-like symptoms and travel or movement histories that may have put residents in the path of Fijians living with COVID -19.

He says it is a necessary step and one of the ways to stop this infection from spreading further in the community.

Mobile Screening Teams will be visiting households within the boundaries of the lockdown area.
