Peru has extended the national state of emergency for the second time to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.

Key points:

  • The national state of emergency has been extended until May 10.
  • The nationwide curfew from 6:00 p.m. to 4:00 a.m. remains in place, except for in Piura, Tumbes, Lambayeque, Loreto and La Libertad, where it is 4:00 p.m. to 4:00 a.m.
  • On Sundays, a home quarantine is in place for the whole country. Only one person per family is allowed to leave the home to obtain food, pharmaceuticals or handle financial matters from Monday to Saturday.
  • During the state of emergency, wearing face masks is mandatory for individuals when they are on streets and roads.

Additional information: The original state of emergency, which was declared in March, established a number of restrictions. International and domestic travel were suspended and borders were closed. Immigration offices and public-facing businesses, with some exceptions, were also closed.

Analysis & Comments: The second extension, which keeps a variety of travel and immigration restrictions in place, will impact the movement of people into and out of Peru.
