UPDATED May 5 — Phnom Penh City Hall introduced changes to restrictions in 51 communes in an announcement on May 5, generally easing restrictions across the city.
City Hall’s list now includes 11 communes with red zones — all of them only partially — and 24 with at least some areas in orange. Also on May 5, curfew hours were made to end earlier, now going from 8 p.m. to 3 a.m.
The three color-coded lockdown zones, rules for which were announced on April 26, came as the city recorded more than 2,500 Covid-19 cases that week.
Yellow zones were a relaxing of previous lockdown rules, though an alcohol prohibition remained in place.
