Following a decision of the High-Level Committee on COVID-19, several activities will be able to operate again as from July 1, PM Pravind Jugnauth has announced.

Public and private gatherings should not exceed 50 people. No restrictions on the movement of those under 18. However, they are strongly recommended to avoid public places such as gymnasiums and youth centers.

Places of worship, fast food, sports halls, gymnasiums, restaurants, funerals, weddings and socio-cultural activities will reopen with a maximum of 50 people.

In restaurants, food courts and fast food outlets, a distance of 2 meters must be respected between the tables with appropriate ventilation. Individual and Group outdoor sports will be permitted. However, horse-racing will remain “in camera.”

The beaches will also reopen – swimming and walking will be allowed, but no picnics. Community centers, village halls and CABs will reopen in alphabetical order (not allowed to those under 18).

Kindergartens, public parks will also reopen. Schools remain closed until July 5.

Rodrigues will be accessible as from July 15 – as per sanitary protocols.

Jugnauth said the reopening of borders scheduled for October 1 will “depend on the cases identified by then, their severity” and the percentage of the population that will have been vaccinated.

“From the moment that more than 60% of residents are vaccinated with the two doses, we will reach the herd immunity.”

Over 500,000 people are said to have been vaccinated so far.
