No indoor gatherings are permitted apart from families living in the same house, the Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) has reiterated.
The MoPH confirmed this, and other guidance, following the announcement of additional restrictions last Wednesday as part of the Covid-19 measures in Qatar.
"An individual, or family (including children) from the same household, can go to parks, beaches and public spaces and perform activities including running, walking, swimming and cycling, but they cannot sit down together, have picnics or gather with others," the ministry said in a clarification on social media on Tuesday.
For outdoor gatherings, these are only permitted within the outdoor home environment (gardens and outdoor home areas) for the following: gatherings of family members living in the same household, and gatherings of up to five fully vaccinated individuals (14 days after second dose).
The MoPH stressed that it is more important than ever that people adhere to the Covid-19 preventive measures: always wear a mask when you go outside your home, maintain at least 1.5m distance from others, avoid crowded and limit the time spent in enclosed spaces, and wash your hands regularly.
