UPDATED: Control Zones And Restrictions Explained



The CCSA will recategorise many provinces on Monday 22nd February each with different controls and restrictions in place.

Below is a brief explanation of what each colour represents.

Note that the new restriction levels can be upgraded by provincial governors as they see fit to control the spread of Covid-19 in their own part of the country. What they cannot do is loosen the levels set by the CCSA.

Technical Troubles



In the process of making a few changes to the front and backend of Stickboy 2.0 it would seem that every upgrade or fix results in numerous breakages.

The most frustrating of them all is the PHP cache that won’t automatically clear leaving visitors thinking there have been no updates since their last visit when there probably have been.
