Swimming Pools Can Now Reopen In Lebanon


The Ministry of Interior announced the opening of indoor and outdoor swimming pools equipped with chlorine, from 5 am to 6 pm on Monday, May 18th.

Interior Minister Mohamed Fahmy explained: “According to the recommendations of doctors and the Ministry of Health, swimming pools equipped with chlorine are allowed to swim in.”

He continues: “Unfortunately, the beaches in Lebanon are polluted and risky and therefore cannot be opened; not even to sunbathe because of the water splashing.”

Sports clubs, indoor and outdoor playgrounds, beaches, the Corniche, public parks, and indoor sports halls (gyms) remain closed.

Restaurants, however, will reopen with new changes as of Monday.
