The Minister of State for Media Affairs, Amjad Adaileh, has confirmed today that there is no change to the Eid Al-Fitr holiday and the restrictions announced before.

Adaileh affirmed that a comprehensive curfew will be imposed on the first day of Eid, whether it was Saturday or Sunday, where people are not allowed to use their vehicles, except for the medical cadres and the epidemiological inspection teams.

He added, "The opening of universities depends on the epidemiological situation in Jordan and the appropriate decision will be taken after the Eid holiday. Returning to normal life is linked to the epidemiological situation."

He pointed out that people's commitment to the comprehensive curfew reached approximately 99%, adding that the success achieved by Jordan was due to the citizens' commitment despite the violations that were dealt with according to the law.

"The government has taken more than 400 decisions and actions since January 24 concerning the corona pandemic.

This came during a press conference held by the Media Affairs Minister, jointly with the Minister of Health, Dr. Saad Jaber, and Director of the coronavirus Crisis Cell, Brig. Gen. Mazen Farrayah at the Prime Ministry building.

A group of journalists representing the local, Arab and international media attended the conference, according to the regulatory mechanism announced by Minister Adaileh, which is based on the guidelines for the return of work in public sector institutions.
