Lebanon Imposes New COVID-19 Restrictions

The government of Lebanon on Thursday announced new COVID-19 restrictions as part of its efforts to control the spread of the virus.

Lebanon’s tourism ministry in a statement ordered restaurants, hotels, fitness centers and entertainment venues to require visitors to present either a certificate of COVID vaccination or a negative PCR test before entering.

The ministry said it is requiring such establishments to enforce the new rules until January 9.

Recently, the health ministry also announced a fine of about 250,000 Lebanese pounds ($165) for those people who are not taking their vaccine doses.

The penalty charge sees an increase on the previous fee of 50,000 Lebanese pounds imposed on people who had not been jabbed but had passed on the virus, the National News Agency had recently reported.
