Some restaurants in Qatar to open with 100 percent dine-in capacity from September 1

Some restaurants in Qatar will open with a 100 percent dine-in capacity from September 1, the Ministry of Commerce and Industry has announced.

Restaurants will have to obtain a Qatar Clean programme certificate which outlines guidelines to follow.

This includes staggering shifts, not allowing walk-ins, keeping a two metre distance between tables, cleaning common areas at least every three hours and using QR codes to provide contactless menus.

Full details of guidelines for the scheme can be found on the Qatar Clean website here.

Restaurants without the certification will only be allowed to operate at 30 percent capacity.

All eateries will have to follow rules including restricting the number of guests per table to five, sterilising equipment continuously, and providing hand sanitisers.

Qatar is about to enter phase four of reopening, which has been split into two sections.

It will see the metro reopen, home-cleaning services restarting and cinemas and theatres welcome guests once again.
