Lebanon Eases Curfew & Lockdown Measures

AFP

In a memo issued on Tuesday, Lebanon’s caretaker Interior Minister Mohamed Fahmi relaxed the nighttime curfew.

Fahmi reduced the curfew hours allowing for businesses to remain open for a longer time. Instead of starting at 10 pm, the curfew begins at 1 am and remain until 6 am.

Basically, Lebanon is now on an overnight curfew of 5 hours only.

Almost all businesses are allowed to open, despite the surge in coronavirus cases.

Cinemas in Lebanon will finally be allowed to reopen, for the first time since the first lockdown in March. Bars, pubs, nightclubs, event halls, markets, and the Casino du Liban will also reopen.

The memo pointed out that weddings can be allowed at 50% capacity of the selected venue.

The Interior Ministry’s memo comes after the end of a strict week lockdown, following a spike in infections.

In August, Lebanon’s Higher Defense Council extended general mobilization regulations until the end of the year.
