New Covid-19 restrictions announced in Bahrain

Restaurants, gyms, cinemas and salons will be closed for two weeks

Bahrain is set to close restaurants and cafés for two weeks as part of new restrictions, the National Taskforce for Combating the Coronavirus has announced.

Eateries will only be able to operate on a delivery and takeaway basis until midnight on Thursday 10 June.

Essential services, including hypermarkets, grocery stores, bakeries, banks and pharmacies, will continue to operate but gyms and sports halls, beaches, swimming pools, salons and barbers, cinemas and malls will be closed to the public.

Social gatherings in private homes are also banned, and all educational institutions have moved to remote learning.

Bahrain recently increased its daily vaccination capacity to 31,000 doses per day as part of efforts to combat the spread of coronavirus in the Kingdom.

Those who have been in close contact with a positive Covid-19 case must quarantine at home as soon as they are informed, and activate the quarantine feature on the BeAware Bahrain app.

All current entry procedures to Bahrain remain unchanged.
