The State of Emergency Proclamation should clearly state who, what, where and why any
restrictions are implemented. (E.g. The curfew is intended to reduce unnecessary traffic and prevent
accidents after 6:00 p.m. The curfew will not affect business operations or persons commuting to and from
work etc.)
When implementing restrictions law enforcement agencies should be consulted regarding
enforcement activities.
