Friday, the inspection teams of the Ministry of Labor issued warnings against six unauthorized coffee shops in Balqa, Jerash and Irbid for serving shisha.

The ministry's media spokesman, Mohammed al-Zyoud, confirmed that the ministry's inspection teams are intensifying their inspection visits in the capital and the rest of the Kingdom's governorates.

As of June 15, establishments in Jordan will be allowed to provide shisha in establishments, under conditions set by the government in the context of confronting the coronavirus pandemic.

Facilities wishing to re-allow shisha must submit a request to the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities, the Amman Chamber of Commerce (ACC), or the Tourism Directorate in their governorate to sign a pledge to abide by the approved health protocols.

Among the conditions announced by the government with the plan to reopen sectors - which begins June 1 in three phases - is that all workers in the facilities must receive a coronavirus vaccine, with 21 days having passed since receiving the first dose.
