Dhaka: Saudi Arabia will ease Covid-19 restrictions from October 17, the interior ministry of the country said on October 15.
The move comes in response to a sharp drop in daily infections and a considerable development in vaccinations.
Saudi government will lift social distancing measures and will allow full-capacity attendance at the country's two Holy Mosques in Mecca and Medina for fully vaccinated people, the ministry added.
The authorities also cancelled curbs on fully vaccinated people at closed venues, gatherings, transportation, restaurants and cinemas.
Masks are no longer mandatory at public open places while still imposed at closed venues, it also mentioned.
