Saudi Arabia will temporarily reimpose some restrictions in the city of Jeddah starting from June 6 until June 20 as part of efforts to contain the coronavirus outbreak, Saudi Press Agency (SPA) reported, citing the Ministry of Interior as saying.

This comes after the Ministry of Health noticed a spike in the number of cases reported in the area, according to SPA.

The new measures include restricting movement in all areas of the city from 3 p.m. to 6 a.m., halting all workplace attendance for employees in both the private and public sector, and prohibiting dining in all restaurants and cafes, SPA reported.

Gatherings of more than five people will also be banned.

However, the interior ministry said that all domestic travel through air and land will be allowed, and entry into and out of the city will not be restricted outside the curfew hours.
