Phnom Penh Municipality, Preah Sihanouk, Kandal, Prey Veng and Siem Reap provinces have been determined as the high-risk COVID-19 areas of infections after the country suffered from the third wave of community COVID-19 outbreak starting Feb. 20, Health Minister Mam Bunheng said in a statement.

“Requirements for wearing face masks and keeping a physical distancing (of 1.5 meters from each other) must be implemented from now on until further notice,” he said.
