Rabat, Morocco (TMT)- The Moroccan Ministry of Interior and the Moroccan Ministry of Health have shared a joint communiqué where they are counseling all citizens living in Morocco “voluntary self-isolation,” including “to stay home and limit their travel.”

The joint statement stresses that “movement in public places will be conditioned by the absolute need to buy food, get medicines, see a doctor, leave the house for an emergency or go to work.”

“Local authorities and public forces, National Security and Royal Gendarmerie will be responsible for orienting citizens to respect the implementation of these measures taken for the general interest of the Moroccan people,” the communiqué further reads.

Both Ministries have reassured citizens regarding their daily life needs and necessities, stressing that “there is no need to worry about the reserves of food supplies.”

Industry Minister Moulay Hafid Elalami has stressed earlier that Morocco’s stocks of essential goods will last well beyond the month of Ramadan.
