Kuwait’s government has declared that it will ease coronavirus restrictions placed within the country in the coming week by shortening the nightly curfew and reopening hotels and mosques.

The country is expected to enter “phase three” of its coronavirus restrictions on July 28 by allowing taxis to operate and resorts as well as hotels to re-open.

In addition, Kuwait’s Center for Government Communication (CGC) intimated that all mosques would be open for Eid Al Adha prayers as the Muslim community expects the holiday to begin on July 31. Until now, only some mosques had been allowed to operate.

New Regulations 

CC updated that the curfew put in place to restrict the spread of the coronavirus will begin an hour later at 9 PM (1800 GMT) and end two hours earlier at 3 AM (midnight GMT). There will be a scheduled review of the decision by the ministerial cabinet after the Eid Al Adha break.

The cabinet also decided to end the isolation of the Farwaniya district which was the last isolated area in the country. The region had recorded 61,872 coronavirus infections and 421 deaths.
