no permit required for entry and exit Industrial Area from Monday

Jun 14, 2020

The Government Communications Office (GCO) said in a statement Sunday that no permit will be required to enter and exit Industrial Area, effective Monday, 15 June.
The decision is in line with the first stage of the gradual lifting of the restrictions imposed as a result of the outbreak of the coronavirus (Covid-19), said the statement. 

Entry and exit checkpoints will remain to ensure compliance with precautionary measures, including checking to ensure that bus capacity is reduced by half, masks are being worn, and only individuals with a green health status in the Ehteraz application enter the area.
The Industrial Area was partially closed after the discovery of a number of coronavirus cases among its residents. During the partial closure period, thousands of people were tested for the virus, and more than 6,500 individuals were transferred to quarantine. Those who were suspected or confirmed to be infected with the virus were provided with free, high-quality medical care.
In light of achieving the desired objectives of the partial closure, the Permanent Committee for Industrial Area Affairs eased restrictions by gradually opening and developing a system of entry and exit permits for a period of time, which are being cancelled Monday. The continued use of entry and exit checkpoints will ensure the health and safety of Industrial Area residents and all members of society.

It must be emphasized that the easing of restrictions does not mean the virus has disappeared, GCO reminded the residents.  All members of society should continue to take precautions and follow recommended guidelines to ensure the successful implementation of the gradual lifting of the restrictions imposed in Qatar, with the aim of returning to normal life, the statement stressed.
