The Libyan Presidential Council imposed Wednesday a four-day total curfew starting 6.00 pm, saying this curfew would be followed by a ten-day 9.00 pm-to-6.00am curfew while keeping a 24-hour curfew on Fridays and Saturdays weekly.

The decision extended banning social events, public transportation and grand markets as part of austere measures to limit the spread of COVID-19.

As usual, the curfew and bans don't include groceries and basic needs' stores, yet they were asked to follow strict precautionary measures as any violations would be subject to fines and legal action.

Individual crafts, offices and other businesses are allowed to work after the total curfew ends, but they must follow strict anti-coronavirus measures.

The decision kept public work capacity as 30% from 9.00 am to 12.00 pm, calling on relevant authorities to monitor the implementation of the curfew and to take action against the violators.
