Phnom Penh curfew starts today

A two-week curfew from 8pm to 5am starts today in Phnom Penh, a day after a sub-decree detailing administrative measures to contain Covid-19 was issued by Prime Minister Hun Sen.

“Travelling in Phnom Penh is temporally banned between 8pm and 5am,” said Phnom Penh governor Khuong Sreng in a directive signed on April 1.

But travelling is still permitted for family emergency and medical services, cargo transport, firefighters, workers, and those allowed by the local authorities.

Non-essential businesses such as restaurant and cafes must also cease operations during the curfew.

All gatherings are also banned, except among family members living in the same home, funeral rites as permitted by the local authorities, and medical workers on duty.
