Restaurants and cafes in Kuwait opened its doors on Sunday to receive dine-in customers after months of closure over COVID-19 concerns.
The Kuwait Cabinet has decided to reopen all eateries provided customers abide by health precautionary measures against COVID-19 and conduct temperature checks. Dining inside restaurants and cafes is allowed from 5:00 am to 8:00 pm, after which only takeaways and delivery orders are accepted.
Although dine-in services have resumed, people will still have to reserve a table before entering the restaurant or cafe, use digital payment transactions and avoid cash payments.
Workers in restaurants and cafes must measure their temperature on a daily basis.
The Cabinet had ended a partial curfew imposed a few months ago to combat the spread of the coronavirus pandemic, from the first day of Eid Al-Fitr on March 13 as the country is heading for reopening various sectors on gradual basis.
Cinemas and theatres were reopened only for people who have been vaccinated provided customers strictly observe all health conditions like wearing face masks and observing social distancing. All public and private celebrations including weddings and gatherings at diwaniyas are still banned.
