Kampong Cham provincial governor Un Chanda has extended restrictive measures for two more weeks through August 5 to curb the spread of Covid-19. The decision comes as the Covid-19 situation in the province has deteriorated.
“The extension of administrative measures enforcement is warranted. Lockdowns of villages and households will be imposed in case Covid-19 is detected. The authorities and relevant departments as well as the general public have to respect these measures strictly,” he said in the July 23 notice.
The governor also extended the province’s night-time curfew, instructing all businesses such as restaurants, cafeterias, mobile food stalls, night markets and minimarts to close from 8pm to 3am. Public gathering is also prohibited during the curfew.
The sales of all kinds of alcohol and the gathering for drinks, entertaining events – either at home or at work – and religious ceremonies all are banned.
All people in the province are required to wear a face mask and maintain distancing.
On July 23 alone, the provincial administration reported 67 new transmission cases and four deaths.
