The Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) has announced that thermal screening for Covid-19 is no longer required in public places except in metro stations, airports, seaports, and the land border.

The decision comes as part of Phase 4 of the Gradual Lifting of Restrictions and with the number of new daily Covid-19 cases remaining low in recent weeks, MoPH said in a post on Twitter.

The Ministry has also emphasized that a green Ehteraz status is still required to enter public places.
