In a written statement issued on Thursday, the Health Ministry said that in the light of that decision it wanted to clarify that the following venues are not included in phase three and are not allowed to reopen:

–       Music and dance venues

–       Nightclubs

As regards these businesses, no decision has been taken for the time being, and their reopening will be evaluated later, based on the epidemiological situation as it evolves.

The above will be regulated by a relevant decree, it added.
