New Covid19 Restrictions for May



 New Covid19 measures were introduced over the last 48 hours.

The new measures are a reaction to the discovery of 2 clusters with a total of 20 confirmed community cases as of May 1. New measures were introduced in fast and furious succession. Given that measures were announced at different times, we simplified and compiled the complete list of measures introduced.
