What are the restrictions on institutions?
The condition is that those who enter the commercial establishments should be admitted only after checking their body temperature and making sure that it is normal. For this, special staff should be assigned to the duty and the necessary equipment should be provided. At the same time, those who have not been vaccinated and those with Kovid disease should not be admitted to institutions. The system should be set up to check the mobile app and ensure both these things. Establishment owners should ensure that the required sanitizers are available to the customers visiting the establishments. We must also ensure that people meet all the criteria such as wearing a mask and maintaining social distance. In addition, equipment, shopping carts, and surfaces within the premises must be properly disinfected.

Larger companies with 50 to 249 employees will be fined 50,000 riyals and companies with more than 249 employees will be fined up to one lakh riyals.
