Nauru President Lionel Aingimea is encouraging residents to mask up, social distance and stay home to stop the spread of Covid-19.
Nauru is battling its first Covid-19 outbreak in the community, with 372 people having tested positive for Covid-19 so far.
Government information office director Joanna Olsson said 2,242 people had been tested by June 20.
In this outbreak, the first of its kind in the community, three people were initially detected on Friday, June 17.
President Lionel Aingimea, said the cases are either in quarantine facilities, at home, or at the negative pressure Acute Care Unit.
Aingimea said the quarantine facilities are almost full and soon authorities will rely on home isolation.
A resident in Boe District, who would like to remain anonymous, told RNZ Pacific people are staying home to stop the spread of the virus.
He said some people have been panicking despite high vaccination rates.
The government has mobilised welfare support, and an ex-gratia payment will be paid to the government and SOE employees, pensioners, and disability recipients to assist people during this period.
Car wash services have been suspended in a bid to slow down the spread of the virus.
Mr Aingimea said overcrowding and queuing at car wash stations are an opportunity for the virus to spread.
Nauru's vaccination rate here is very high, at 98 percent.
Food stalls and street vendors can sell food, but people are asked to wear masks, and gloves and maintain a social distance of at least 1.5 meters from each.
Car wash services have been labelled non-essential and have been asked to temporarily suspend business operations.
The Nauru government said overcrowding and queuing at car wash stations are an opportunity for the virus to transmit.
