The ministry said the reinstated restriction are precautionary measures like wearing masks and maintaining social distancing; at the Two Holy Mosques following a recent surge primarily due to the new Omicron variant in the Kingdom.
It is noteworthy that the ministry had imposed a gap of 15 days between the performances of two Umrah pilgrimages earlier but canceled it later in October 2021.
The Saudi authorities had removed coronavirus-related restrictions and allowed Umrah and prayers at the Two Holy Mosques; and visit Al-Rawda Sharif at the Prophet’s Mosque to their total capacity effective from Oct. 17 following a directive of Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman.
