Phase one of Doha's post-lockdown reopening strategy starts today

Following the lockdown and stay home efforts in Doha and across Qatar, the government has introduced a plan to gradually reopen public spaces to people.

There are four phases in the plan, the first starting on June 15 and the fourth and final one starting on September 1.

All changes are still subject to strict social distancing measures and guidelines to help stop the spread of Covid-19 and could be reversed.

Here's what you can expect to see happen from today (June 25).

The limited opening of mosques.

Selected private healthcare facilities can open at 40 percent capacity.

Shops with minimum area of 300 sq m will open in malls (but malls can not operate with more than 30 percent of shops open).

Some parks for outdoor sports.

Offices can operate with 20 percent of employees.
