Jordan has sought a balance between its anti-COVID measures and its keenness to open up the country, Interior Minister Mazen Faraya said Wednesday, emphasizing it is a "hard equation."

Faraya said in a press conference in the Prime Ministry the key to addressing the COVID-19 challenge is to establish a "balance between the health, economic and social priorities, which we have made sure to entrench in this plan," referring to a government plan to open up the country.

He said the plan to reach a "safe summer" would include reducing the nighttime curfew hours leading to a complete cancelation of the curfew on 1 July 2021; he added until then, the movement pass would be contingent on receiving the COVID-19 vaccine.

Authorities would be using the "Sanad" application to inspect shops and enterprises to make sure they adhere to health regulations and protocols; it would be able to track the medical history of employees, showing if a certain employee has been vaccinated or is infected with COVID-19, he added.

Faraya highlighted that people who wish to enter Jordan would be required to register with the "Visit Jordan" website and upload their COVID vaccine certificate.
