Effective Tuesday, June 30, the Government of Kuwait will transition from Phase One to Phase Two of Kuwait’s five-phased reopening plan.
During Phase Two, a 9-hour curfew is in effect from 8:00pm until 5:00am. While each phase is expected to last for three weeks, the Government of Kuwait has indicated that phases may last shorter or longer depending on local health conditions.
A complete lockdown continues to be imposed on several neighborhoods until further notice: Farwaniya (except for areas between Streets 60, 120, 502, and 129), Mahboula, and Jleeb Al-Shuyoukh. Residents of these areas may leave their houses during the non-curfew hours but will not be able to leave their neighborhoods.
In Phase Two, all Phase One activities will continue to be permitted in addition to the re-opening of government offices and private businesses with no more than 30 percent staff. The banking, financial, and construction sectors, retail stores, shopping malls, and public parks are also set to reopen in Phase Two. Services at restaurants and cafes will be limited to drive-through and takeout only.
As a reminder, mosques, industrial activities, general services, including maintenance and laundry, home delivery services, drive-through and delivery services at restaurants and cafes, grocery stores, cooperative societies, company transport vehicles, gas stations, auto repair shops, and private hospitals and medical clinics have reopened during Phase One.
