Just last week, Lebanon’s coronavirus committee finally allowed the reopening of cinemas and theaters for the first time since the beginning of the lockdowns in the country.
With the declining rate of COVID-19 cases, Lebanon decided on Friday to extend the opening hours of malls and amusement centers from 8:00 AM to 12:30 AM.
It also allowed events such as weddings, conferences, and exhibitions to take place but with a curfew of 12:30 AM and a maximum of 100 guests within 50% capacity limit of the venue.
Today, the memo issued by the Health Ministry indicated that events no longer have a curfew and that it is up to the organizers to set the time. It also allowed up to 250 guests to be present granted it does not exceed the 50% capacity limit of the venue.
Guests of the events must have a permit from the IMPACT platform indicating their intention of attending the event as well as making sure they have a negative PCR test result.
