Saudi Arabia lifts COVID-19 precautionary measures

Jun 14, 2022

By Neelam Rahim

Saudi Arabia announced on Monday that it had lifted all precautionary and preventive measures related to Covid-19.

The decision was based on the follow-up of the epidemiological situation of the coronavirus pandemic, health recommendations, and the effective nationwide vaccination program. The interior ministry was quoted by SPA as saying.

Wearing masks will not be required in closed places, except for the Grand Mosque, the Prophet’s Mosque, and locations for which protocols are issued by the Public Health Authority, or facilities, activities, events, events and public transportation that wish to implement higher levels of protection the ministry said.

Proof of vaccination on the Tawakkalna application is no longer required to enter facilities, activities, events and events, board planes and public transportation, except for those whose nature requires the requirement of immunization.

Citizens who wish to leave Saudi Arabia will be required to take a third booster dose after eight months – instead of three months, except for the age groups determined by the Ministry of Health.

The SPA said that the ministry encourages people to take the third booster shot to protect themselves from the virus.

Saudi Arabia has been easing preventive measures against the virus since last year after its success in curbing the COVID-19 spread because of the vaccination program.
