Phase 3 of lifting Covid restrictions begins

Residents welcomed the start of Phase 3 of the gradual lifting of Covid-19 restrictions in Qatar Friday, while also stressing the need to keep following the precautionary and preventive measures.

Among others, the highlights of this phase include permitting private healthcare facilities to operate at full capacity, allowing children in cinemas subject to conditions, increasing the capacity of Doha Metro and public transport, driving schools, wedding halls, barbershops, amusement parks, entertainment centres, museums, libraries, nurseries, educational centres and private training centres, and allowing more people in a group to gather in parks and on beaches and opening playgrounds and exercising equipment there.

This phase is marked by several allowances for vaccinated people, like the previous ones. Also, the Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) has said Covid-19-recovered patients who have been infected in the last nine months are entitled to the same privileges as vaccinated individuals.
