MoPH highlights safe practices to follow as Qatar lifts COVID-19 restrictions

By QLNews

The Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) emphasized the significance of staying protected to avoid infection as phase 4 of COVID-19 restrictions is scheduled to take effect across the country on Sunday.

The announcement was made by MoPH via its Twitter account yesterday, stating that it is important to continue to protect yourself your loved ones, and the community against the possible risk of infection.

Moreover, the Ministry recommends the public to use culturally and religiously appropriate greetings that avoid physical contact, such as waving, nodding, or place the hand over the heart.

The Ministry highlighted the following methods for the public to practice moving forward:

  1. Practice physical distancing - Always maintain a 1m distance from others.
  2. Follow the advice on the appropriate use of masks issued by the Ministry of Public Health.
  3. Cover mouth and nose with the bent elbow or a tissue when coughing or sneezing.
  4. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  5. Regularly and thoroughly wash hands with soap and water or clean them with an alcohol-based hand rub. 
  6. Avoid large gatherings and crowded places.
  7. Meet with people virtually when possible, using digital communication tools and platforms.
  8. Hold gatherings and events outdoors rather than indoors when possible; if indoors, ensure adequate ventilation and shorten the duration and the size of the event.
  9. Use culturally appropriate greetings that avoid physical contact, such as waving, nodding, or placing the hand over the heart.
  10. Stay home and call 16000 if you feel unwell or have COVID-19 like symptoms.
  11. Get vaccinated and continue observing precautionary measures.
