This was decided after a meeting of the East New Britain provincial advisory committee with Health Minister Jelta Wong recently.
 
There are currently 30 infections in East New Britain, 140 in West New Britain and 12 in New Ireland Province and the closure of the New Britain Highway is part of an effort to stop the spread of Covid-19.
 
The travel ban also includes water craft from landing in East New Britain. There will be no direct flights from Hoskins to Tokua and passengers traveling to East New Britain will have to travel through Port Moresby.
 
Churches have been advised to discourage big gatherings.
