Lockdown rules are changing in response to the fast-changing pandemic situation: in future, Red Code zones will be imposed after two units or families have tested positive Covid-19, rather than two persons, which was the previous ruling.

The Response Coordination Centre announced the rules for Yellow Code zones have also been altered. Buildings or areas with one unit or family (rather than one person) that has tested positive for Covid-19 will be listed as prevention areas, with the Yellow Code designation. Areas previously classified as Red Code zones may now be reclassified as Yellow Code zones if after undergoing one NAT, they do not meet the requirements of being classified as a lockdown zone.
