The Sebha Municipal Council decided on Monday to impose a curfew and close shops for two weeks, from March 8th until Saturday, March 20th, 2021.
This was stated in a circular issued by the council to the competent authorities of the city, a copy of which was shared with Alwasat.
The council attributed the decision to "the alarming increase in the number of active Covid-19 cases, the number of deaths and lack of compliance with precautionary measures by citizens." The curfew will be in effect from 1 p.m. to 8 a.m. the following day.
The decision also included the closure of "universities, public and private schools, kindergartens, social event halls, gyms, and the suspension of sports, cultural and recreational activities."
The council excluded "hospitals, health centers and pharmacies," from the curfew resolution.
