The Minister of Interior Samir Al-Mobaideen, directed the all governors Monday to close down establishments which serve shisha, arrest the owners, and impose a judicial guarantee of a JD 100,000 bailout fee for all violators.

Mobaideen said that there are many establishments secretly serving shisha, which is a violation of the defense orders and all set health protocols in light of the coronavirus pandemic.

Nov. 17, Prime Minister Bisher al-Khasawneh announced that restaurants and cafes will no longer be permitted to serve shisha in light of the pandemic.

The government announced earlier this month that there is no date set to allow serving shisha again.
