Saudi Arabia has decided to lift the suspension on dine-in services in restaurants and cafes, and reopens gyms and movie theaters from March 7 but maintains a ban on large social gatherings.
The Kingdom will allow the resumption of entertainment activities, reopen movie theaters, gyms, and gaming venues, and allow dine-in services in restaurants and cafes, SPA reported on Friday, citing an interior ministry source.
However, all large social gatherings such as weddings and banquets continue to be banned, regardless of the location, until further notice. The maximum number of individuals in a single gathering is set to 20 people.
The source underlined the need for everyone to adhere to these measures and not be complacent in applying precautionary measures, preventive measures, and protocols approved for all activities to preserve the public health of society and protect the gains achieved during the last period on all levels.
The ministry added that inspection campaigns will be increased during the next phase to ensure that all individuals and facilities adhere to the preventive measures and that fines are imposed on violators.
