covid rules

Post by HEPZIBAH »

I've been asked about the official rules and guidelines that are in place in Egypt at the moment.
Can anyone enlighten me?

Have the official rules and guidelines changed much since the start of the pandemic?

I appreciate that whatever they are, they will not be being obseved by a large proportion of the population, but then that is also the case in other countries - not least the UK and USA.

There are currently restrictions on public transportation operating from midnight until 4am. There are also restrictions, regarding opening hours , numbers of customers and facilities available, on schools, universities, cafes, bars, clubs, hotels and tourist locations .....all of which are operating at a reduced capacity. I think the regulations are, in general, observed by the proprietors, if not their customers.

The wearing of face masks is mandatory in closed public spaces, including government buildings, private offices, malls, retail outlets and public transport including private taxis. Legal penalties could be applied for non-compliance. In general these rules are ignored!

As to voluntary social distancing, there’s no observance that I’ve noticed.
