Internal Restrictions/Closures

Libya's Tripoli-based internationally recognized Government of National Accord (GNA) extended lockdown from July 31 through Aug. 10 as part of its efforts to slow the spread of coronavirus disease (COVID-19).

The authorities will impose a 24-hour lockdown through Aug. 5, and a 2100-0600 curfew Aug. 5-10. Authorities also extended the suspension of passenger flights through at least Aug. 3.

The GNA reconfirmed that travel between cities, the use of public transportation, social gatherings, and the operation of many nonessential businesses would remain constrained until further notice.

Markets supplying essential goods are allowed to operate. The government in eastern Libya, led by the Libyan National Army (LNA) leader Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar, has intermittently imposed similar preventative measures and curfews in areas under its control.
