Phnom Penh curfew extended through April 28

Phnom Penh Municipal Governor Khuong Sreng has extended the 8pm-5am curfew for another two weeks in a bid to contain the ongoing community outbreak of Covid-19. The curfew will now last through April 28.

In a directive dated April 13, Sreng said the municipality will also continue to enforce other administrative measures.

"No dine-in at eateries, be it food stall, diner, restaurant, cafe, beverage shop or hotel. Such businesses may remain open but only for take-away orders," he said.

As for nighttime curfew, Sreng reiterated that exemption is granted for medical reasons or family's necessity and to those who work night shift as long as they have a letter proving as such from employers and as permitted by the authorities.

Also exempted are trucks transporting containers, cargos, cement for construction work and solid and medical waste, and so is food delivery.

Sreng said violators will face legal action as stipulated in the law on the control of Covid-19 and other contagious disease.
