The government has ordered a lockdown of all district and provincial borders within the Kingdom from midnight on Thursday to midnight on April 16.
The public is not allowed to travel out of their districts or provinces to halt the spread of Covid-19 in light of the impending Khmer New Year. The only exception is Phnom Penh where no travel restriction is applied.
An executive order signed by Prime Minister Hun Sen said the lockdown does not apply to goods transportation by land, waterways and air, state vehicles and other means of transport used by officials on duty from all state institutions at national and sub-national levels.
It also does not involve vehicles used by members of the armed forces on duty, government and private ambulances, fire engines, waste collection trucks, vehicles transporting workers to and from their workplaces with permits issued by the Ministry of Labour and Vocational Training.
The people's urgent visits to hospitals or health centres are also not affected, but no more than four persons are allowed in each case.
