Jordanian COVID-19 curfews removed from midnight

Jordanians will say farewell to the partial curfew on Tuesday night, ending more than one-and-a-half years of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) lockdowns.

In April last year, Jordan imposed a nationwide lockdown, including a night curfew, to curb the spread of COVID-19 virus.

The government has recently revealed a set of measures for the third phase of the plan to return to normalcy, including ending all curfews and resuming in-class education at schools and universities.

As Jordan has experienced improvement in the epidemiological situation, the government has announced that most sectors will be allowed to work in full capacity at all times.

The government has also referred to the availability of COVID-19 vaccines and the increase in the inoculated population as another major encouraging reason to reopen the country.

Over 4 million of the kingdom’s 10 million population have received the second dose.

The measures will come into effect from Sept. 1.
