The enhanced restrictions announced on Friday aim to slow down and restrict the spread of the virus. “We are asking everyone to embrace the new restrictions and follow public health advice to stay home and restrict your movements for the next two weeks. It is in all our hands to interrupt the spread of this virus.”
