There are no lockdowns or curfews yet mask wearing is now widespread and other measures to protect against the spread of COVID-19 were introduced or tightened in the New Year, including relating to indoor dining at restaurants; how many people can gather at private or public events such as weddings. Funerals or church services; and how many people private minibus taxi services are allowed to carry. The amplified music ban was reinstated. Most, if not all, shops, businesses or public offices require customers to wear face masks, to wash or sanitize hands before entry, and to adhere to 3-6 feet space markings when queuing.
