The curfew implemented in Kulhudhuffushi City in Haa Dhaalu Atoll amid the COVID-19 pandemic has been lifted after a month.
The decision has been made after the government ordered to reopen mosques and resume congregational prayers in the islands with no signs of the illness.
Kulhudhuffushi City went under curfew under its own volition on 20 April with 24-hour lock down. However, on 1 May, some restrictions were lifted with the general public being allowed to go out without a permit between 6 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. The restrictions came after the testing in the neighboring islands also came back negative for COVID-19.
The Kulhudhuffushi task force had originally planned to hold the curfew until the end of Ramadan. However, with the government order to reopen mosques in COVID-free islands, the curfew has ended but parks and other sports avenues will remain closed.
Kulhudhuffushi City is the second city to go under lock down after the capital, Male’ City.
