A presidential recommendation that noise levels be limited beyond existing restrictions in the latest decree regulating the state of emergency has fallen on deaf ears. Currently, noisy neighbours can only warrant a visit by police between 11pm and 7am, but the president sought to have an additional limit imposed between 8am and 8pm to safeguard remote workers and students. Another recommendation, calling for a fixed calendar and a staggered return to school, also failed to make it into the government’s final law decree.
