Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare has today signed an order to further reduce current curfew hours effective immediately until revoked.
This new order revoked the previous curfew hours from 6:00pm to 6:00am.
The new curfew hours are from 12:00am midnight to 6:00am beginning on 11 February 2022. This means a person in the emergency zone must remain at his or her place of residence and not leave or be away from his or her place of residence.
During the new curfew hours, only essential service workers will be allowed to move around within the Honiara Emergency zone from Alligator Bridge in the East and Poha Bridge in the West of Honiara city.
The public is urged to observe the new curfew hours to avoid getting into trouble.
