Restrictions and curfew extended for two more weeks in Casablanca

Following the significant increase in cases of COVID-19 contamination in Casablanca, the authorities have decided on new restrictions for the Casablanca prefecture. The curfew is at 22:00.

According to a government statement issued on 1 February, the restrictive measures already decided on 13 January 2021 have been extended for two more weeks, starting this Tuesday at 21:00, it is said.

These restrictive measures include the national curfew applied from 9 p.m. until 6 a.m. In addition, restaurants, cafés, shops and supermarkets are obliged to close at 8 p.m., while the ban on public or private parties and gatherings remains in force.

The government communiqué states that this decision is based on the recommendations of the Scientific and Technical Commission on the need to maintain the measures necessary to fight the coronavirus, especially after the evolution of this epidemic at the global level following the appearance of new variants of the virus in some neighbouring countries.
