Masks will no longer be required for fully vaccinated persons in open locations, but they must still be worn in confined spaces and regions not monitored by the Tawakkalna tracking app.
Social distancing rules will also be lifted, and public venues, transportation, restaurants, movies, and other gatherings supervised by Tawakkalna will be permitted to function at full capacity for fully vaccinated persons. Trending Now: GACA revises regulations to address cancelled flight tickets.

The same regulations will apply in Madina to the Prophet’s Mosque.
Wedding hall events will be permitted with no limitations on attendance, however individuals engaged must still follow the other measures, such as wearing masks in enclosed areas.
