However, supermarkets and pharmacies will be exempt from this restriction.

Only those who have been vaccinated will be allowed to enter.
However, this restriction will not apply to those who are exempt from vaccination due to medical problems. These people will have to register on the Al-Hassan app for their medical excuse. Similarly, people under the age of 15 will also be exempt from vaccination. The committee said testing has been stepped up in industrial areas and densely populated areas to control the virus. The latest technologies are also being used for the quick detection of viruses. In addition, eligible people are being given a third dose of the vaccine to boost their immunity.
