On 14 April 2020, the U.K. Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) issued updated travel information for North Macedonia, which reads in part as follows: “The Government of North Macedonia has announced that there will be a nationwide curfew over the upcoming public holiday from 4 pm on Friday 17 April until 5 am on Tuesday 21 April. Police, army, health workers, pharmacies, and markets and restaurants that deliver products are exempted from the ban.

“Additional curfew measures continue for those people aged under 18 and over 67. There is a complete ban on movement of people aged under 18 except for 1pm to 3pm on Monday to Friday. For people aged above 67 years of age, there will be a complete ban from Monday to Friday apart from 10am to 12pm.

“The general curfew does not apply to members of law enforcement bodies, army members, firefighters and people in need of emergency medical assistance, or those in a life-threatening condition and people undergoing dialysis treatments. Public transportation will not be available during this time. Availability of taxis will be limited and taxi drivers will be allowed to transport people only to a healthcare facility or a pharmacy.”
