This decision has led to the cancellation of numerous events and activities scheduled for January and February, including programs related to Hara February. “This is for our safety and we must follow the rules,” said Melody, head of marketing for a four-star hotel in Kuwait City. “I have some reservations in January and February. These are all paid reservations. Some were canceled, but I was told to wait until Kuwait allowed the function or activity to hold the money. We can’t blame the government for this decision, but it will once again have a big impact on our sales, “she said. The Cabinet announced on Monday that all indoor social gatherings will be suspended from January 9, 2022 to February 28, 2022, as cases of coronavirus increase in the country. The Cabinet has also decided from yesterday that all passengers arriving in Kuwait must provide a negative PCR test performed 72 hours before arrival. “We have some reservations, but no cancellations yet. I have features organized by some Filipino organizations and some religious gatherings. Half paid at the time of booking, The other half will be paid the day before the event. Some reservations were made without payment over the phone, so they are on the waiting list, “banquet manager Abdul Watik told the Kuwait Times. Some who were planning to celebrate their birthdays and anniversaries in January and February also decided to cancel. “I was planning to celebrate my 50th birthday on January 13th, what should I do? Follow the rules – I know the consequences if not. Instead, a close family member at home or I’m going to enjoy the 50th time with my friends, “Marissa said. Kuwait urged citizens to leave several European countries, including the United Kingdom, France and Germany, due to the surge in cases of the Omicron coronavirus variant. In a series of statements overnight on Sunday, the state also warned Kuwaitians, often those who spend heavily abroad, to avoid traveling to these countries.
