KRG Extends Anti-COVID-19 Lockdown until June 15

ERBIL - The Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) on Wednesday announced the extension of anti-coronavirus lockdown until June 15, a statement confirmed.

As part of the previous protective measures, all traffic movements between the four provinces of Erbil, Sulaimaniya, Duhok, and Halabja will remain banned, a statement by the interior ministry said.

Any citizens, including members of the security forces, returning from other Iraqi provinces should be put in quarantine for 48 hours, the statement said, adding that they should also pay for the COVID-19 tests.

The curfew will not affect those vehicles belonging to the UN, Red Crescent and Red Cross or security forces or medical teams.

Apart from the two major airports in the Kurdistan Region, all the border crossings will also remain closed during the lockdown, the statement said.
