Only vaccinated individuals now allowed to enter malls, restaurants, gyms and salons in Kuwait

A person will need to show their vaccination status on the My Identity or Immunity mobile application

Authorities in Kuwait have started enforcing the decision to restrict the entry to malls, restaurants, cafes, gyms, health clubs, salons, parks and cultural facilities to only those vaccinated against Covid-19.

To enter, a person will need to show their vaccination status on the My Identity or Immunity mobile application, the Kuwait News Agency (KUNA) reported on Sunday.

Those whose status is green (fully vaccinated) or orange (one dose or less than two weeks after their second dose) can enter, while those whose status is red (unvaccinated) will be denied entry.

Individuals who are not eligible to be vaccinated must show a certificate from the health ministry. Children under the age of 16 can enter without restrictions.

According to KUNA, any facility found permitting unvaccinated individuals will be fined KD5,000.

The Kuwaiti government announced earlier this month that access to most public venues will be restricted to fully vaccinated people in an effort to contain the spread of the Delta variant, which has led to a sharp rise in new infections.

Kuwait reported 1,558 new Covid-19 cases on Sunday, taking the total number of infections to 351,481.

It also recorded 14 deaths – among whom 12 were not vaccinated – taking the total number of fatalities to 1,933.

The health ministry also announced that 1,592 additional patients had recovered from the virus, with the overall recoveries at 331,015.
