The National Taskforce Committee for COVID-19 Prevention and Control has been tasked by the Prime Minister to determine areas in the country that are low-risk, medium-risk, and high-risk for the virus, and to create a corresponding color-code scheme of red, yellow, and green zones as the Government looks into easing lockdown restrictions.


  • Based on the classified risk-level and colour code, each zone will have differing degrees of restrictions and measures in place.
  • To mitigate negative economic effects, the government has agreed to ease the restrictions for industry, so that production can resume.
  • The National Taskforce Committee in charge of economic affairs will also begin to prepare for the medium and long term measures to stimulate the economy and boost the private sector.
