Phnom Penh unveils rules for post-lockdown transition

The Phnom Penh Municipal Administration issued a set of detailed guidelines for the seven days to May 12 after the capital emerges from lockdown at the onset of May 6.

In the 14-page document signed by municipal governor Khuong Sreng released on the evening of May 5, the municipal administration will retain the colour-coded designations of city areas with similar rules as during the lockdown period.

Individuals in red zones must remain in their residence except for “essential travel”, while those in orange zones can travel to “necessary work”. Travel will be permitted in yellow zones and most businesses will be allowed to reopen.

However, the current 8pm-3am curfew will remain in effect for yellow and orange zones.

Six of the capital’s 14 districts contain red zones – Prampi Makara, Tuol Kork, Meanchey, Russey Keo, Por Sen Chey and Chbar Ampov.

Another six districts have no orange zones – Chamkarmon, Daun Penh, Prampi Makara, Sen Sok, Chroy Changvar and Boeung Keng Kang.

As per the Covid-19 law, violators of travel or work restrictions face court or other administrative measures.
