All Jaber Border Crossing employees were transferred to a quarantine hotel in Irbid, following the closure of the Jaber Border Crossing.
Interior Minister, Salameh Hammad, decided on Wednesday to close the Jaber Border Center for one week, starting from Thursday morning.
The decision came as a result of the huge increase in new local COVID-19 cases in Jordan.
During the closure, specialised teams will work on sterilising the border centre and begin implementing strict health measures to prevent any person infected with COVID-19 from entering the country.
