*Gathering for prayer in front of mosques, on roofs of houses and buildings, or in any other place, is prohibited
*All kinds of gatherings are prohibited on Corniche, beaches and in front of restaurants and cafeterias

The Ministry of Interior (MoI) has issued an awareness poster in multiple languages, reiterating the ban on gatherings in the country.

Violations will be penalised with jail terms and/or fines, the MoI said.

The advisory reminded people that all kinds of gatherings are prohibited on the Corniche, beaches, in public places and in front of restaurants and cafeterias.

Gathering for congregational prayer in front of mosques or on the roofs of houses and buildings, or in any other place, is also prohibited as a means of protection and to ensure safety, the MoI points out.

Anybody violating these instructions will face imprisonment for a period not exceeding three years and a fine of up to QR200,000, or any of the two, the ministry noted.

Adherence to the health and preventive measures will ensure protection "for yourself and your family" and also contribute to the "security of the society", it added.

The poster has been issued in several languages for the benefit of the public.
