Al-Ayed: Government to announce new decisions regarding total lockdown

The government will soon announce new decisions regarding lockdowns and curfews across the Kingdom, said the Minister of State for Media Affairs, Ali Al-Ayed, on Monday.

Al-Ayed said the government is reviewing the current 48-hour total lockdown and the midnight curfew restrictions. The two-day total lockdown starts at 1 AM on Friday and is followed by the normal overnight curfew starting at 1 AM until 6 AM on Sunday.

However, Al-Ayed noted that in order to reduce the spread of the virus, citizens should adhere to the required health and safety measures which include, social distancing and wearing masks.

Al-Ayed said these decisions will be announced before the end of this week.
