#COVID19: Congo Brazzaville Reopens Borders, Ends Curfew

The country had closed its borders and instituted the curfew in the thick of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Republic of Congo (Brazzaville) has announced the immediate reopening of its international borders and the lifting of the curfew that has been in effect in the country since the advent of COVID-19 in March 2020. 

The government also called for the reopening of bars and nightclubs throughout the national territory.

The announcement came in a communique after a meeting of the National Coordination for the Management of the COVID-19 Pandemic which held its 34th session on Monday.

As concerns relating to the reopening of bars and nightclubs, owners of these ventures have been instructed to demand vaccination cards before allowing people into their premises.

Sporting activities and mass gatherings would also resume under the strict respect of barrier measures put in place and obligatory tests for all persons entering Congolese territory have been lifted.
