Extension of National Emergency: On September 25, the government of Peru extended the current state of emergency through October 31. The 11:00 pm to 4:00 am curfew and restrictions on the use of most vehicles on Sundays remain in effect in most of Peru with the exception of the following regions where there is a quarantine and a mandatory daily curfew from 8:00 pm to 4:00 am: Apurímac (Abancay); Huamanga (Ayacucho); and Huánuco (Huánuco). In addition, the all-day Sunday curfew will continue is the regions of Cusco, Puno, Moquegua, and Tacna.
In the above quarantine areas, only one person per family will be allowed to leave the home during non- quarantine hours. In all of Peru, children under the age of 12 (formerly under 14) must remain at home and are allowed out of the house for 60 minutes each day. We encourage all U.S. citizens to comply with the Peruvian government’s quarantine measures and to follow the instructions of Peruvian authorities. Limit your time outside, carry your identification and phone, and remember that the use of a facemask is required in public.
