Yesterday, the Ministry of Health and Medical Services announced that highly-controlled movement into Viti Levu’s six containment areas would be permitted exclusively for those who are currently outside of the containment area in which they reside.

One-way movement will be allowed for individuals in non-containment areas travelling into containment areas as well as individuals residing in one containment area who need to move to another.

Movement from containment areas into non-containment areas, however, is not allowed at this time.

Movement will be permitted in private vehicles, taxis and pre-selected buses that operate at half capacity. Minibuses will not be allowed to travel across containment area borders.

All drivers and travellers must wear masks and have the careFIJI contact tracing application installed with Bluetooth turned on. Drivers who enter a containment area must drive directly to the place of residence for the traveller, and return back to the containment area border once the trip is complete.

This is one-way travel exclusively available to those who are currently stuck outside of the containment area in which they reside.

This is not a mechanism to allow travel for funerals or other events. Those who move into a containment area must stay there.
