The Ministry of the Interior (MoI) has warned against gatherings in public places, including holding group prayers in squares, rooftops, or buildings, as part of the precautionary and preventive measures against the coronavirus (COVID-19).

In a new awareness message, the MoI said, “It prohibits gatherings on beaches and squares and in front of restaurants and cafeterias. It also prevents the holding of congregational prayers in the courtyards of mosques, rooftops, buildings, or any other square in order to preserve your safety.

The ministry warned that anyone who violates this would face jail term up to three years and a fine up to QR200,000, or one of these two penalties.
