NORO Town in Western Province is currently imposing strict Covid-19 measures after the Gazzette Order of the Lockdown for Emergency Zones in Western Province, last Monday.
After 57 days of collective efforts and working together to fight against the COVID-19 in Noro Communities, there are also low rates of transmission and very low cases recorded so far.
Speaking to Solomon Star Gizo, Noro Oversight Committee Inspector, Robert Rickie said the lower recorded cases shows that they have achieved some positive result along the difficult path they have encountered during the outbreak.
Inspector Robert Hickie said “it shows we are united as a community, church, families and individual.”
He said now that the Lockdown has been lifted, curfews will be imposed.
“This will be effective for Noro and Munda residents.
“People must be aware on the latest developments happening in our communities concerning updates to abide,” he added.
Churches will resume but with strict Covid-19 safety measures imposed.
Public transports will still need to observe the given temporary business hours from 6am to 6pm.
For small businesses, second hand clothing and others, they will resume operations as soon as the Noro OSC receives feedback from the authorities.
Cooked food vendors are also advised to listen out for the new setup at the market facilities.
Mr Hickie further added Noro and Munda bus service will resume shortly.
He said the Noro Oversight Committee will have a meeting soon, to discuss the matters before informing the public of some latest developments.
