"The session of the National Committee for Emergency Situations saw the voting of Decision 112 to prolong the state of alert and the measures necessary to be applied in this period for the prevention and combating of the COVID-19 pandemic. Clearly our situation now is a better one than two-three weeks ago, thus, after many discussions, the implementation of measures for the coming period that will alter the restrictions in force up to now was reached," said Raed Arafat, on Tuesday, at the Victoria Palace.
Firstly, he added, the CNSU decision proposes "the elimination of circulation restrictions for persons during the night."
"As you all know, the deadline was 23:00 hrs, after which circulation was restricted for persons who are not vaccinated and which have not been cured for the disease, thus, these restrictions are eliminated," Arafat said.
Also according to the CNSU decision, the permissible functioning hours for all economic agents, including restaurants and stores, was moved from 21:00 hrs to 22:00 hrs, the DSU head also said.
