Bahrain restaurants to reopen in September

Restaurants in Bahrain are set to reopen from September 3.

Dining establishments across the Kingdom have been shut since March 17 as part of precautionary measures to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).

Since then, all eateries have been takeaway-only.

The National Medical Taskforce to Combat COVID-19 has now unveiled a phased reopening, which saw gyms, swimming pools and outdoor sports fields reopen on August 16.

Outdoor dining at restaurants and coffee shops will reopen at the start of September, and you will be able to dine indoors from September 24, according to the plans.

The phased reopening can be delayed if the number of positive results, or if the occupancy rate in hospitals, goes up.

The taskforce also announced that tourism restaurants, including those inside four and five-star hotels, will be allowed to open for special occasions, provided groups do not exceed 20 people. Only one reservation will be allowed inside the restaurant at a time.
