    Iraq’s Higher Committee for Health and National Safety on Monday decided to:

    • Continue to impose a nationwide partial curfew between 7 PM and 6 AM from Sunday to Wednesday, and a full curfew from Thursday to Saturday
    • Permit Iraqis to travel abroad, on the condition that they give an undertaking to self-quarantine at home for 14 days on their return to Iraq, and be tested for Covid-19 at the Iraqi border point of entry
    • All returning Iraqi nationals must undergo both clinical and rapid Covid-19 tests. Those who test negative, must self-quarantine at home for 14 days. Those who test positive or show symptoms of Covid-19, will be transferred to specialist hospitals
    • Close all private doctors’ surgeries, medical clinics and centres for two weeks, starting from 07/07/20 until 20/07/20
    • Direct relevant authorities to strictly enforce official preventative health measures, including the mandatory wearing of face masks, and social distancing rules in shops, in all government and private-sector buildings and vehicles, and to hold to account those who break the rules
    • Permit the resumption of partial trade exchange via Shalamcheh and Mendali border-crossings for two days a week, and direct local health authorities to take all the necessary precautions to ensure the safety of workers and goods
