This decision came after the meeting with Prime Minister Najib Mikati and the ministerial coronavirus committee to reduce the spread of Covid-19, with new restrictions applied.
The Health Minister, Dr. Firass Abiad, stressed that “the implementation of social distancing measures in public places is also crucial to reduce the spread of the virus.”
As part of the new Covid-19 travel restrictions, it is required that the Ministry of Tourism launches a responsive call center to receive complaints about the failure to apply preventive measures in relevant institutions, including the airport, stressing the need to tighten violations in all tourist places.
Lebanon’s new curfew aimed to counter the new rising wave of coronavirus infection will be implemented from December 17th to January 9th, from 7 PM to 6 AM, and until further notice.
