The Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities has announced that 209 restaurants and pastry shops in all governorates will be allowed to resume their work.

In a statement issued today, the Ministry explained that until Saturday evening, April 25, 3,521 establishments have submitted requests via the (delivery.mota.jo) platform that the Ministry has recently launched, of which 559 requests were complete.

Specialized committees, formed by the ministries of Tourism, Health, Labor and Local Administration, as well as the Greater Amman Municipality (GAM) and the Jordan Food and Drug Administration, began field inspection of the 559 facilities that submitted complete requests, where only 209 of them (tourist, popular, pastries) fulfilled the entire conditions to provide home-delivery services.

Consequently, the 209 establishments were allowed to resume their work as of today from 8 am to 6 pm according to the established health and procedural requirements, taking into account the preventive health conditions and the social distancing.

Establishments that have fulfilled the conditions will receive official letters from the authorities that have conducted the inspection campaigns so that they will have evidence that they were authorized to open for any future inspection campaigns by regulators.

The Ministry hasn't provided a list of these establishments so far.
