The Minister of State for Media Affairs, Amjad Adaileh, announced on Tuesday, May 12, that the commercial sectors will not be allowed to work on the first day of Eid Al-Fitr, as there will be a full curfew similar to what is applied every Friday.

He reaffirmed that people can only go out on foot. 

Earlier on Monday, May 11, Adaileh stated that the Eid Al-Fitr holiday will be from Saturday morning, May 23 to Monday evening, May 25.

He said that the government decided to ban the use of vehicles on the first day of Eid Al-Fitr, confirming that the medical and nursing staff, epidemiological inspection teams, and a limited number of workers in some vital sectors are excluded from the curfew decision during the first day of Eid.

However, people can use their vehicles during the second and the third days of Eid, Adaileh stated, explaining that residents of Amman, Zarqa and Balqa have to commit to the even-odd license plate policy and the policies set before for the use of vehicles.

He added that only permit holders can move between the governorates.
