Lebanon’s Restaurants & Gyms Are Reopening

@palmsbeachhouse | @sebyoceanblue

Lebanon has announced a decision in the latest of its plan to ease the coronavirus lockdown restrictions and reopen the country.

As of Monday, the country’s restaurants and gyms will be allowed to open from 6:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.

In addition, indoor pools, Casino du Liban, game centers, and other tourism establishments will also be allowed to open. However, this plan excludes bars and nightclubs, which therefore cannot reopen yet.

All must operate at a limited capacity, and there will be a nightly curfew from 8:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. except for those allowed to be open 24/7.

People will still have to follow preventative measures, such as wearing face masks and social distancing to limit the spread of the virus.

This reopening is taking place despite the high number of daily recorded coronavirus cases. Lebanon’s top COVID-19 expert has warned of an “upward trend and impending wave.” On Friday, Lebanon recorded 3,588 new cases and 55 deaths.
