Bahrain government urges public to stay at home despite restriction relaxations

Bahrain’s Ministry of Health has urged the public to stay at home when possible despite some restrictions being relaxed.

The government has stressed the importance of “not reverting to normal social behaviour during the resumption of usual operations at commercial and industrial businesses”.

Shops in Bahrain reopened on Thursday evening (May 7), but many businesses including gyms and salons have remained closed, and restaurants are still takeaway and delivery only.

The Ministry is calling on citizens and residents to continue social distancing, noting that safeguarding everyone’s wellbeing is “a communal responsibility that requires the cooperation of all”.

Active cases have been registered across Bahrain in Manama, Muharraq, Busaiteen, Budaiya, Sirta, Zallaq and Riffa, among others.

The Ministry also revealed that these cases have been registered at commercial stores as a result of close social interaction.
