July 1, Jordanians will face new procedures as part of the government's three-phased plan to reach a safe summer, and the return of life to normal with the gradual reopening of closed sectors due to the epidemiological situation.
Night curfew hours
July 1, the curfew hours will be reduced to 12am for establishments and 1am for individuals, and the vaccination certificate will be considered a permit for the purposes of movement outside the permitted times.
Curfew hours in the Golden Triangle (Aqaba, Petra, Wadi Rum and Disi camps) will also be abolished, and businesses will be allowed to operate there with 100 percent operational capacity, provided that the targeted vaccination rate is reached, and health protocols are adhered to.
To enter the Golden Triangle area, a PCR test is required 72 hours in advance for everyone over six years old. If individuals have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine with 21 days having passed, they will also be able to enter.
Additionally, in-person education (summer semester) will be allowed in colleges determined by the Minister of Higher Education And Scientific Research.
Under the plan, government institutions will return to their full capacity (100 percent).
Industrial facilities will also be allowed to operate at their full capacity during curfew hours, and tourist facilities will be allowed to operate at their full capacity and their facilities, provided that 21 days have passed since receiving the first dose of the vaccine for all cadres in the facility, and adherence to health protocols.
According to the plan, the reopening of wedding halls will also take place in the second phase, allowing them to operate at 50 percent capacity at a maximum of 100 people, including the Golden Triangle area, provided that all cadres of the facility receive the vaccine against the coronavirus with 21 days having passed since receiving the first dose, in addition to commitment to the health protocols and public safety and health prevention procedures and measures.
Wedding hall-goers are also required to have received at least the first jab with 21 days having passed. Children are not permitted to attend wedding events.
A health observer from the facility’s staff will be appointed to ensure the application of public safety and health protection measures.
July 15, all electronic movement permits will be canceled during curfew hours unless their holders receive the first dose of the vaccine. Those who have not received the vaccine for special reasons such as infection with the virus or other health reasons are exempt from this decision.
