As phase 4 of lifting COVID-19 restrictions is set to take effect in the country from Sunday, the Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) reiterated the importance of staying protected to avoid the risk of infection.

In a post on Twitter, MoPH stated: "As Qatar moves to phase 4 of the lifting of COVID-19 restrictions it’s important to continue to protect yourself your loved ones and the community against the possible risk of infection"

Following this, the Ministry listed a number of points to ensure safety against COVID-19.

- Follow the advice on the appropriate use of masks issued by the Ministry of Public Health.

- Regulary and thoroughly wash hand with soap and water or clean them with an alcohol-based hand rub. 

- Avoid large gatherings and crowded places.

- Meet with people virtually when possible, using digital communication tools and platforms.
