It also decided to prohibit the use of beaches throughout the day until further notice and to re-close some activities that were previously reopened and did not comply with the requirements set by the authorities.

The Supreme Committee called on everyone, especially young people, to fully adhere to all preventive measures at the individual and collective levels, and stop all family and social gatherings.

Relevant authorities will take all legal measures against the violators. The competent authorities will announce the details of the violators at a later time and publish their names in various media outlets.
