Health Minister Mam Bun Heng said all foreign and Cambodian passengers arriving in the Kingdom are no longer allowed to conduct self-quarantine at home.
He said all passengers are to conduct a 14-day quarantine at the ministry’s designated centres.
Bun Heng spoke to reporters before leaving for Myanmar to give medical supplies against COVID-19 to the country.
“We have to strengthen it through the airports. Those who enter the Kingdom through the airports now must be placed in 14-day quarantine,” he said.
He said in the past for any airplane which carried COVID-19 infected passengers, those who flew with them were allowed to have quarantine at their home for 14 days.
“But now they are no longer allowed to do so. Whether they are infected with COVID-19 on the plane or not, it is absolutely necessary for them to conduct a 14-day quarantine at the state-run centres. So we must be even more careful,” Bun Heng said.
