The National Covid-19 Emergency Response Centre (NaCOVERC) in Sierra Leone has today, September 13, 2021, announced the lifting of the country’s 11:00 p.m to 5:00 a.m nationwide curfew with immediate effect.
This comes after President Julius Maada Bio met with the Presidential Task Force, and because of the country’s present Covid-19 status, that triggers the decision to lift the curfew and relax all preventive measures put in place.
However, the ban on sports activities, other forms of entertainment, nightclubs and cinema centres, large public gatherings including street carnivals, and all other activities have also been lifted and they are advised to adhere to all rules governing COVID-19.
