Rules for capital's colour coded zones simplified
Long Kimmarita | Publication date 29 April 2021 | 15:51 ICT

As the modified lockdown measures take effect on April 29, the Phnom Penh Municipal Administration has issued a directive that explains which businesses can operate in yellow and dark yellow [orange] zones.

In the directive dated April 28, Phnom Penh municipal governor Khuong Sreng said all businesses in yellow zones can resume operations, including food and beverage outlets, but they must practice health and safety measures.

“All markets, restaurants, food stalls, cafes, beverage shops, and all other food and beverage businesses in yellow zones are permitted – but all must be for take away,” Sreng said in the directive.

All businesses in the yellow zones must require their staff and customers to abide by Covid-19 preventive measures as directed by the Ministry of Health.

In dark yellow zones, food and beverage businesses can reopen but can only provide takeaway service. All business in red zones is forbidden.

Sreng instructed all of the capital’s 14 district administrations, the Phnom Penh Municipal departments of commerce and Tourism to check that all establishments in dark yellow zones do not violate these orders.

He said the directive will be in place for seven days from April 29 to May 5, when a new notice will be posted.

Sihanouk Provincial Administration and Immigration police are preparing the documents to deport a Chinese man and ban him from re-entering Cambodia forever for violating health measures, as the country is dealing with massive increase of new cases.


Keang Pirom, spokesman for Sihanoukville Provincial Hall, said the police arrested the Chinese man today for breaking the rules during lockdown, including wearing mask.

“After the arrest, the provincial governor ordered the Police to prepare the deportation procedure and to ban this Chinese man from entering Cambodia forever,” he said.



Sihanoukville governor last week announced a halt to business and entry and exit in Chamnot Ream village, Bit Trang commune, Prey Nob district, after finding hundreds of cases in the location. Today, the health authorities in the coastal province found 187 new cases, with more than 100 cases traced to Reaksmey Mongkul area.

There might be 370 very wealthy families living within the red zone. Then add the average and the really poor.
There seems to be missing at least one zero at the end of those numbers!

Today in Siem Reap my wife went to go to the hospital (main one in old town). She was told she couldn't go as there was an outbreak there and it was "closed down" - which I believe likely meant locked down to visitors. Supposedly they have tested 15 people positive - not sure if that is all in the hospital or total for Siem Reap.

Now all of this was conveyed by a small group of policemen that may or may not have 100% of the information.
