Vilufushi under monitoring mechanisms


Th. Vilufushi has been placed under monitoring mechanisms after a random sample on the island tested positive for COVID-19. 

Vilufushi was placed under mechanisms yesterday and the Island Council strengthened measures on the island after the positive case was identified. 

Measures include not going outdoors unless for a necessary reason, cease of café/restaurant and shop services with the exception of delivery. 

Parks, public spaces and sports complexes on the island are also to be closed while sports activities and public gatherings are also not permitted. 

COVID-19 cases have recently been on the rise in atolls apart from the capital. A number of islands have been placed under monitoring mechanisms due to the situation.
