Only vaccinated and recovered people will be allowed at events in Bahrain

Bahrain’s Health Minister has issued a decision regarding health requirements that must be applied when holding events to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

As per the new guidelines, the number of attendees should not exceed 50% of the capacity indoors, allowing live performances to take place while adhering to social distancing measures, and prohibiting the establishment of buffets and self-service.

The decision indicated that all attendees must wear face masks during entry and exit to and from the facility, and those who do not comply with this condition are not permitted to enter. Workers must wear masks at all times, and hand sanitisers must be distributed and placed in prominent places.

The temperature of all workers and attendance must be measured before entering the facility using a thermometer, and those whose temperature is 37.5 degrees Celsius or higher or who exhibit symptoms related to the virus must be asked to leave and call 444.

Attendance at events is restricted to those who have been vaccinated against the virus or who are recovering from it.

The decisions will be implemented from the first day of Eid.
