The Minister of State for Media Affairs Sakher Dudin, confirmed Saturday that the government has no intention of imposing a total lockdown on Sunday, coinciding with the celebrations of the centenary of the Jordanian state.

March 31, the Council of Ministers announced that April 11 will be an official holiday in Jordan, in celebration of the country's centenary. During a Cabinet session, Prime Minister Bisher al-Khasawneh decided to suspend operations across all ministries, official departments, institutions and public bodies April 11, which falls on a Sunday, therefore allowing for a long weekend.

Earlier Saturday, Dudin told Roya that the government will announce Monday new COVID-19 measures that will be implemented during the Holy Month of Ramadan.
