The Government Communications Office (GCO) has reiterated that following the correct social distancing precautions remains essential to stop the spread of Covid-19 and reduce the number of active cases.

This, in turn, will ensure that the Covid-19 restrictions continue to be gradually lifted, the GCO said in a tweet on Sunday.

In a related matter, the Ministry of Interior (MoI) has stressed that "wearing a facemask properly while going out reflects your awareness of safety procedures and supports preventive measures against Covid-19".

"Removing the mask from the face or not wearing it properly (in places where it is mandatory to wear a mask) is an unhealthy behaviour and disregards safety measures taken for a healthy society," the MoI said in a post on Twitter on Sunday.

The ministry had also recently urged people to keep the Ehteraz app activated to benefit from multiple services that enhance the Covid-19 preventive measures and limit the spread of the virus.

For the Ehteraz app to work, one should keep the phone connected to the Internet, Bluetooth should be enabled and the location feature should be activated.

The app also provides latest statistics pertaining to Covid-19, notifications, alerts and awareness instructions.

Meanwhile, the GCO tweet is accompanied by a video that highlights the importance of social distancing to prevent the spread of Covid-19, while also referring to the need to have the Ehteraz app on the phone,
