The second phase which was implemented over four weeks spanning June 2nd – 29th, is still subject review.

In the second phase, the government had relaxed restrictions on banking operations and worship places.

Meanwhile, the Federal government had retained nationwide curfew but the time was reduced from 10 pm to 4 am, to limit social interactions and, therefore, reduce the risk of the transmissions of the virus which is now on community transmission level.

It had also removed restrictions on the movement of goods and services in the second phase.
