The Secretary-General of the Ministry of Health for Coronavirus Affairs, Adel Al-Belbisi, explained Thursday that the epidemiological situation in Jordan is good and stable, noting that the European Union (EU) has classified the Kingdom as safe to travel to.

In a statement to Roya, he said that those who have been vaccinated with the first dose against the coronavirus have totalled to almost 2.5 million, with those who have completed vaccination totalling to 1,378,395.

Belbisi explained that people who received the first dose with 21 days having passed and did not miss the second dose can move freely after the new curfew hours, which have become from 6am until 12am for establishments and 1am for individuals.

In regards to the reopening of wedding halls, he said that a maximum of 100 people are permitted to attend ceremony events.

Belbisi emphasized the importance of party organizers ensuring that the people coming to the wedding halls have been vaccinated against COVID-19 fully, or have taken one dose 21 days having passed.

He said that the work of the Ministry of Health and other regulatory bodies is to monitor the owners of wedding halls by implementing health measures.

Belbisi indicated that children under the age of 18 are forbidden from entering wedding halls, with the exception of those between 16 and 18 who have been fully vaccinated, or have received one dose with 21 days having passed.

Wednesday, the Ministry of Health announced that those aged between 16 and 18 are allowed to receive the Pfizer-BioNTech coronavirus vaccine in Jordan. They can register on the official online platform designated to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

Belbisi said that studies have shown that the Pfizer vaccine is safe for the aforementioned age group.

He said that there will be no written consent required from parents for 16 to 18-year olds when registering on the vaccine platform.

These tasks are appointed to party organizers.
