“To keep pace with the fast-changing national and global situation, the government has decided to close all our borders to human traffic, but this will not affect returning residents,” he said.“All returning residents will be subjected to strict screening procedures, including rigorous enforcement of the 21-day self-quarantine, which must not be breached for whatever reason.“Certificates of Covid-19 fitness, especially from countries with high incidence of infections, would greatly assist all of us in controlling the pandemic both inside our country and globally.”
“Government has put a blanket ban on gatherings around night clubs, bars, beer halls, movie houses, swimming pools, gymnasium and other sporting activities, until further notice, and with immediate effect visits to hospital and clinics will be reduced to one visit per day, and even then involving one relative per patient,” he said.“From now until further notice, the government discourages unnecessary travel in and around the country.“Additionally, unnecessary movements beyond homes, including social visits to relatives and friends, should be avoided.”
“All transport operators are encouraged to comply with public health measures which the government will be announcing shortly, all for the safety of commuters.“These include screening on points of embarkations, and occasional de-contamination operations targeting public vehicles and depots,” the president said.
