The government today announced the lifting of the curfew in Honiara which was put in place since January during the outbreak of COVID-19.
Attorney General John Muria Jr. said Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare on Friday signed the order to end the curfew effective tonight.
The curfew was from 12am to 6am.
“That has been lifted. There is no longer any curfews,” said Muria.
There were no details on why the curfew was lifted but the government had been publicly stating that COVID-19 in Honiara has slowed down.
Muria said despite the lifting of the curfew people must continue to wear mask, practice social distance and use sanitizer.
