Saudi Arabia to restrict public places to vaccinated from August 1


• Only fully vaccinated people will be allowed to enter public spaces in Saudi Arabia from Aug. 1, the Kingdom’s Ministry of Municipal and Rural Affairs said on Tuesday.

• Those without a vaccine will be barred from entering malls, restaurants, shops, and markets. Anyone visiting these spaces will need to show proof of vaccination, the ministry said.

• “In line with the ministry’s efforts to protect the public’s health, vaccination is required to enter public and private facilities, while complying with precautionary measures to maintain public health,” the ministry tweeted.
