Curfew News and Updates

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

30 days hath September, April, June, and November, except April, which was infinite.
Probably not the best time for jokes, (nobody has walked into a bar for a couple of months) but CDC and the WHO have recommended laughter, so take your medicine.
“Against the assault of laughter, nothing can stand.” — Mark Twain
“Always laugh when you can. It is cheap medicine.” — Lord Byron
I told the girlfriend to throw a dart at a world map and said “wherever it lands—that’s where I’m taking you when this pandemic ends.” Turns out, we’re spending two weeks behind the neighbours fridge, once I’ve paid to fix their window.
During lockdown:
  • I have managed to reverse some old habits – I now fart to cover up a cough,
  • and while previously I hadn’t had the time to thoroughly clean my house, this week I discovered that wasn’t the reason.
  • With the extra eating, every few days I try on my jeans on just to make sure they fit. I now get it, that pajamas will have you believe all is well in the kingdom.
Some of the rules have been unclear, though. They said wearing a mask was enough to go to the mart. When I got there, everyone else had clothes on. So I went home to get my hat, and encountered an attractive lady. I looked into her eyes, deep into the emerald green contacts, my heart fluttered, I felt a connection, something deeper, something magical, meaningful, I was transported to another place and I thought, blimey these binoculars are brilliant.
Nothing’s impossible? I do nothing every day!
Stay safe.
We don't stop laughing because we grow old. Other way round.

it should be obvious that it was in order to fully vaccinate 'desirables'
and ensure they didn't contract anything in the meantime

but, they are doing a genuinely good job of rolling out vaccine, if you ignore the nepotism and favoritism

the red zones will be fully vaxxed by the end of the month
and they may try to declare victory over this outbreak then
calculating they can outrun the virus with vaccinations in the rest of the city

that might work
or it might be a big mistake
there are still plenty of high-risk areas
and they may have taken their eye off the ball there while concentrating testing in red zones

A friend in Phsar Kandal was told by police today it all over by "day 5".

I know its hearsay, and from an utterly unreliable source, but it's probably as reliable at the Khmer Times

although the zonal system currently in place in Phnom Penh will continue with Red, Orange and Yellow Zones, Mr. Keut Chhe, Deputy Governor of Phnom Penh, confirmed that the government’s full blockade measures will end on May 5, saying “After the 5th, we did not open Phnom Penh completely, for fear of spreading COVID-19 to other areas
Looks as though interprovincial travel will be back. I'd guess that yellow zones can travel freely, orange and red little change

Would be surprised if the alcohol ban is stopped or bars open.

Just my opinion, no hard facts to back that up

Interprovincial travel already open except for three provinces. Quarantine might be obligatory though.

Alcohol ban is a joke. Even in Phnom Penh you can buy alcoholic drinks if you know your way beyond the mini marts or supermarket s.

There's no mention that I can find on the Ministry of Information's website. My Khmer friend in BT1 red zone is adamant lockdown ends on Thursday and he is off to Mondulkiri. I told him not to get his hopes up.
No matter how much it rains, the dirt never washes away.

Agreed, probably the most I've drunk in the last couple of weeks,
