The Council of Ministers met in the Auditorium of the Ministry of Finance, in Dili and, after analyzing the presentation of the country’s epidemiological situation, the coordinators of the Situation Room of the Integrated Center for Crisis Management (CIGC), decided:
Maintain the imposition of General Mandatory Confinement (lockdown) of the population of the Municipality of Dili, including people who are vaccinated against COVID-19, until September 9, 2021.
All people in the Municipality of Dili, including people who are vaccinated against COVID-19, are still obliged to stay at home, being able to leave only for reasons of health and work (in the case of public administration, the hierarchical superior defines which employees who are not exempt from the duty of attendance), for access to essential goods and services and to receive the vaccine against COVID-19.
All commercial, industrial, craft or service-providing establishments in the private sector of the economy that carry out activities in the municipality of Dili are closed to the public, with the exceptions provided for above.
Regarding the previous Government Resolution, there are only two changes: leaving the residence is allowed to, on the one hand, carry out the voter registration and, on the other hand, to ensure the functioning of companies providing services for the control of pests (Pest Control).
Not to renew the imposition of General Mandatory Confinement (lockdown) of the population of the Administrative Posts of Ermera and Railaco, in the Municipality of Ermera.
Impose sanitary fence in the Municipality of Manufahi between September 2nd and September 15th, 2021.

This ban does not apply to people who can prove complete vaccination (two doses) against COVID-19, as well as those under six years of age who accompany them.
The remaining sanitary fences still in place have not undergone any change.
