Phnom Penh municipal administration has decided to extend its administrative measures for two more weeks, from Sept. 10 to 23 in order to combat and prevent the spread of COVID-19, especially the Delta variant.

According to the new directive issued this morning, high-risk occupational and business activities such as public and private educational institutions that have not yet been allowed for reopening; KTVs, nightclubs, beer gardens and casinos; resorts, museums, playgrounds, and amusement parks; massage therapy, sauna and steam businesses; alcoholic beverage outlets; cinemas, theatres, sports clubs, and fitness centres have to temporarily shut down for 14 more days.

Moreover, it added, private gatherings of over 15 people will also be banned for two more weeks, but with some exceptions.

Occupational and business activities and gatherings that are not restricted must carry out the health safety rules strictly, the directive underlined.

As of this morning, Cambodia’s COVID-19 tally rose to 97,524, of which 16,458 have been imported and 3,323 have been detected with Delta variant. The pandemic has so far claimed 2,007 lives, but 92,495 have recovered.
