Lebanon Is Imposing A 3-Day Total Lockdown During Easter To Avoid A Surge In Cases

Nabil Ismail

Lebanon just announced a 3-day total lockdown for the Easter holiday to prevent a potential surge in COVID-19 cases.

The total lockdown, including a 24-hour curfew, will begin on the morning of Saturday, April 3rd until the morning of Tuesday, April 6th.

During these 3 days, bakeries, supermarkets, pharmacies, clinics, gas stations, will be allowed to stay open and restaurants will be permitted to provide 24-hour delivery service.

To leave the house, people may get a permit for emergencies through the IMPACT website, which serves as an open data platform for all internal Lebanese affairs.

Face masks will be mandatory at all times.

Prayers and visits to churches as well as mosques will be permitted at a 30% capacity with permission from the IMPACT platform.

People will also be allowed to go or come from the Beirut-Rafic Hariri International Airport, granted they have a permit.

This is being done to prevent a similar massive spike in coronavirus cases that followed Christmas and New Years’ celebrations which Lebanon is still trying to recover from.
