As announced by the Public Health Commissioner in the last press conference held on Thursday 30th April 2020, several of the restrictions put in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19 will gradually be removed if by 8pm Sunday 3rd May there is no change in the local situation.
The existing Public Health restriction order expires on Monday the 4th May 2020 and a revised one will come into force on same day. The new order allows for gradual removal of restrictions by phases.
While some restrictions are removed, some will be maintained to prevent the introduction of new cases and mitigate community transmission if a new case is detected.
The Department of Health calls on the public to give full support to the revised measures and to actively engage in adopting the new reality.
Members of the public are asked to pay close attention to these three pillars of COVID-19 prevention.
Since detection of the last case of COVID-19 on Sunday 5th April 2020, Seychelles has not registered any new cases.
All persons placed under home quarantine who develop symptoms are advised to visit the special stations at Glacis Health Centre, Baie Lazare Health Centre and Mont Fleuri Health Centre. The home quarantine period should be completed for 14 days, from arrival in Seychelles or last contact with a positive case of COVID-19. A certificate of quarantine will be presented at the end of the quarantine period.
Anyone with symptoms related to COVID-19 are asked to report to special stations at Glacis Health Centre, Baie Lazare Health Centre and Mont Fleuri Health Centre between 8am-12pm and 1pm-2pm. People who use these health centres for regular consultations, should go to their regional centres.
