Covid-19: extension of restrictive measures in Casablanca

Written by FDM

The restrictive measures announced on September 7 for the prefecture of Casablanca will be renewed for 14 additional days starting September 21.

The extension of restrictive measures in the Prefecture of Casablanca comes following the recommendations of the scientific and technical committee which closely follows the evolution of the epidemiological situation.

These measures consist in the closure of all exits from the prefecture of Casablanca and subjecting movement from (and to) its territory to an exceptional authorization issued by the local authorities, as well as the closure of all schools (primary, middle schools, high schools, and universities), with the adoption of distance education.

The other restrictive measures already adopted are being renewed, such as the closure of local markets at 3 p.m., cafes, and shops at 8 p.m., and restaurants at 9 p.m., in addition to the curfew throughout the territory of the prefecture between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m, except for health personnel and security officers, employees in vital and sensitive sectors and those in the transport of goods, provided they justify their night work.

These measures will therefore remain in force for a further 14 days (until October 4) and the epidemiological situation in the city will in the meantime be subject to careful and continuous assessment, in order to take the appropriate decisions.
