The country’s national committee for COVID-19 decided to reopen cinemas and theatres at 50 percent capacity and until 11 p.m. as daily cases have dropped below 1,000.

Weddings, conferences and exhibitions will also be allowed, capped at 100 maximum attendees and 50 percent capacity of the venue, the report added.

While outdoor restaurants will operate until 12:30 a.m., indoor restaurants will be able to open until 11 p.m. only.
