As Qatar embarks on the second stage of Phase 4 of the easing of COVID-19 restrictions, the Government Communications Office (GCO) has reiterated the importance of complying with the precautionary measures put in place.

On its Twitter page, the GCO said, "As we commence part two of phase four of Qatar’s gradual lifting of COVID-19 restrictions, adherence to these precautionary measures remain essential."

"The situation will continue to be assessed, with the reintroduction or lifting of some restrictions dependent on developments," it added.

The GCO tweet highlights the below measures that take effect in stage 2 of this phase:
