Kuwait City: Kuwait has opened shopping malls, allowed 30 per cent of private and public sector employees to return to work, and has put in place a new partial curfew from 8pm to 5am as part of Phase 2 of its efforts to reopen the economy.
The announcement was made by governmental spokesman Tareq Al Mezrem during a virtual press conference late last month.
“The cabinet of ministers’ interest in reopening the economy led to the decision to open up commercial businesses, trusting that the necessary precautions suggested by the government are implemented,” said Al Mezrem.
Although there is no unified protocol, most shopping malls have imposed mandatory rules requiring visitors to wear masks at all times, and have limited the number of customers per store while implementing the two-metre distance rule throughout their premises.
Images have circulated on social media showing people lined up waiting to enter various stores at The Avenues Mall.
