The Suva-Nausori Lockdown Zone has reverted into two separate containment areas – Suva Containment Area and Nausori Containment Area – from 4am today.

Here are the rules for the containment area:

– curfew hours will be from 11pm until 4 am

– supermarkets, banks, pharmacies and other essential businesses as identified by the ministry may operate

– everyone should stay home unless they have an essential reason to leave

– you should not mix with anyone who doesn’t share your home with you

– no sports of any kind should be played

– places of worship will remain closed

– save for small funeral ceremonies, no non-work gatherings of any size should take place. In fact, you should not come within 2m of anyone if you can help it

– anywhere you go outside of your home, you should have on a mask or face covering

– wash your hands well and often. Use sanitiser when you see it

– businesses that are not on the list of essential services should not open

– you should not share takis, bilos or cigarettes. Any person-to-person interaction – even a maskless conversation  can put you at-risk

– and please download careFIJI, and keep your bluetooth switched on when you are in public spaces. This does not chew battery or data.
