Kuwait recently announced government closures and other measures to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.

Key points:

  • From April 26 to May 28, all ministries, government entities/organizations and public institutions will be closed because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Official work days will start again on May 31.
  • New curfew hours (4:00 p.m. to 8:00 a.m.) will be implemented from the beginning of Ramadan. Those who violate the curfew or home quarantine measures will have their names published in daily newspapers and on social media.
