The Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) has called on all members of society to continue following the precautionary measures imposed due to the Covid-19 pandemic while appreciating the community's commitment to applying these measures and restrictions, which has begun to bear fruit.
On the occasion of the annual celebration of Garangao, which falls on the night of Ramadan 15, the ministry stressed the need to continue adhering to the same procedures and follow the Covid-19 preventive measures.
MoPH explained that the pandemic is still at its peak and there are many infections, hospital and intensive care admissions daily, and many deaths.
Therefore it is very important to continue to adhere to the restrictions imposed that do not allow meetings, social gatherings, and parties except for the members of the same family or no more than five fully vaccinated people in the open air during this period.
The ministry confirmed that the children's celebration of this heritage occasion will be different this year in light of the restrictions imposed to limit the Covid-19 spread due to the continuation of the measures related to the pandemic.
The ministry also called on community members to not allow children to move from one house to another, as usual, as this would help spread the pandemic, and contribute to exposing children and their families to the risk of contracting the virus, especially in light of the spread of new strains.
