Municipal hall releases map detailing colour coded Covid risks by commune

Phnom Penh municipal governor Khuong Sreng released an official map detailing the red, yellow and dark yellow zones within the city under the new lockdown orders for Phnom Penh announced on April 26.

The designation of red, dark yellow and yellow corresponds to areas with high, moderate and low risks of transmission of Covid-19, respectively.

The red zones are located in parts of five districts including Tuol Kork, Dankgor, Meanchey, Russey Keo and Por Senchey.

In Tuol Kork the red zones are Boeung Salang commune’s villages 14, 16 and 17. In Dangkor district the red zones are Praka village of Prey Sar commune and Mol, Thmey and Sambor villages in Dangkor commune.

In Stung Meanchey district all four communes are designated as red zones: Stung Meanchey I, Stung Meanchey II, Stung Meanchey III and Boeung Tompun I.

For Russey Keo and Por Senchey districts, the entire Tuol Sangke I commune and Chom Chao I commune are both designated as red zones.

Several other villages and communes in each of the capital’s 14 districts are designated as dark yellow or yellow zones.

Meanchey district is the only district that has no yellow zones since all of its communes are designated as either red or dark yellow zones.

The directive also explains travel and business permissions and restrictions for each zone.

Those who violate the restrictive measures regarding travel will have their vehicles temporarily impounded and they may be subject to arrest and prosecution under the Covid law.

While travel is completely banned in red zones, it is partially permitted in dark yellow zones and allowed without restrictions in the yellow zones, though curfew from 8pm to 5am is still imposed in those areas.
