Mauritius is currently in a strict national lockdown until 25 March 2021 to prevent the spread of Covid-19 following a spike in infections, and the government of Mauritius has just extended this until Wednesday 31st March 2021. People are currently confined to their residence save for very limited exceptions including shopping twice a week. From 31 March 2021, certain activities will be allowed to reopen, provided that strict sanitary measures are complied with and that those present at their workplace hold a work permit. Essential services, including police, health services, fire services, pharmacies, retail distribution chains, airports, and seaports will remain open throughout the lockdown, with increased health measures in place to protect public and staff.
In parallel, the national Covid-19 vaccination programme was launched earlier this month. Previously aimed at frontline health workers who treat Covid-19 patients and those who meet passengers at the airport, the vaccination campaign has been extended to the whole population.
The offices of John W Ffooks & Co (operating as Ffooks Gokulsing in Mauritius) will remain closed until 31st March. The team is working remotely and we remain available to assist clients on their matters as usual.
We will keep you updated as the situation in Mauritius evolves.
