A fifth round of reopening of commercial activities could be announced after the lockdown.

“Efforts were ongoing to approve the fifth package of business activities that could be resumed, but the high numbers of infections have postponed this until the end of the lockdown period.” - Dr. Ahmed bin Mohammed Al Futaisi, the country’s Minister of Transport.

The fifth package includes requirements for barbershops and women’s beauty centres.

Al Futaisi hoped that the situation might improve after the lockdown, enabling the reopening of more businesses.
