Saudi Arabia Urges Citizens To Avoid Travel

Saudi Arabia called on its citizens to avoid non-essential travel; especially to high-risk countries, due to the spread of the Omicron variant.

The Saudi public health authority, Weqaya, said on Saturday that the world was witnessing a significant increase in the number of COVID-19 cases; with the accelerated spread of the Omicron mutant in many countries.

Weqaya also recommended travelers from outside the Kingdom; whether citizens or residents, regardless of their immunization status; to avoid social contact for five days and undergo a PCR test if they had any respiratory symptoms.

The authority stressed the need to implement preventive measures, such as wearing a face mask all the time; avoiding crowded and public places, and refraining from shaking hands. It also pointed to the importance of having the two vaccine doses and taking the booster dose.
