As the country slowly reopens after undergoing its strictest coronavirus lockdown, restaurants in Lebanon will now be allowed to partially operate 24/7 with specific conditions.
On Sunday, Lebanon’s Tourism Ministry announced that restaurants can now offer delivery services and drive-thru without a curfew.
Although allowed to operate 24 hours a day, the restaurants cannot allow customers indoors as of yet.
This is part of the first step in the 4-stage reopening plan during which people will still have to get a permit allowing them to leave the house. They can obtain this from the Internal Security Forces’ online platform.
During this stage, supermarkets and banks will open at 20% operational capacity, letting in people with valid 2-hour permission from the online platform.
Previously, restaurants had to abide by the curfew hours and could not offer delivery services after 5 p.m.
