Disaster Risk Management Order No. 9 – Dated July 1, 2020


The Gazette of the most recent Disaster Risk Management (Enforcement Measures) Order was posted on three government websites this afternoon (July 9, 2020). The Gazette of this Order – No. 9 – is dated July 1, 2020, although it wasn’t gazetted on or before July 1. This doesn’t surprise me anymore, as it seems to be common with the gazetting of these Orders, that they are given a date which is earlier than the date on which they are actually gazetted.

A copy of the Gazette is provided here:

I tweeted earlier this week about this ongoing, unsatisfactory situation regarding the delay in gazetting the Disaster Risk Management Orders.

  1. I missed reference to the enhanced protocols (need for pretesting) for those coming from AZ, FL, NY and TX from July 10. My oversight?

    • You have identified an area in which the Gazetted Order differs from what the Prime Minister announced on June 29. In the Gazette the date for pre-testing to begin is July 15, not July 1 as announced by the PM. There is no mention of the July 10 date in the Gazette. Or of any specific places identified as high risk areas. (That is probably a changing list under MOHW’s designation of places as high risk & must have expanded to include more than the mentioned US states by now.) Another illustration of why the delay in gazetting and making the Gazette available is a concern.
