Event: The Government of Honduras has implemented additional measures to limit the spread of COVID-19. On March 17, 2020, the Government of Honduras announced a new total curfew for San Pedro Sula which started on March 17 at 10:00 p.m. It will be in effect until Sunday.
Please note the curfew could potentially be extended after this time. According to the announcement, individuals encountered outside without a legitimate reason, such as a medical emergency or acquisition of food or gas, risk arrest by police.
