Detailed information can be found on the Health Ministry’s website. 

The ministry also reminded civilians that despite the heatwave, coronavirus guidelines are still in effect. “In the coronavirus era, it is important to adhere to the guidelines of the Health Ministry regarding the wearing of masks and social distance,” the ministry wrote in a statement.
