The Old Police Station in Al Ruwais has been beautifully repurposed as a cafe. The Arsan Café is picture post card perfect. And a welcome addition to the attractions in North Qatar. It will take around one and a half hours to drive there from the centre of Doha. But there are a number of other things to do once you get there. Like visit the now abandoned village of Al Jamil or the Al Kubaisi Educational Reserve.

A nice road trip whenever you are ready for it.

  • Education Ministry makes attendance compulsory on a rotation basis
  • The ban on summertime working hours in the open has extended.
  • Steps prevented 1 million more getting COVID-19 in Qatar

The Education Ministry has ended the option for parents to choose either blended or remote education. And has made attendance compulsory on a rotation basis for all students, from November the 1st.

This ruling applies to students in both government and private schools as well as kindergartens

The average attendance rate has been raised to 42% of capacity

However students with chronic diseases will be excluded from attendance in the first semester

The ban on summertime working hours in the open has extended.

Up until now work under the sun in open workplaces was prohibited from 11:30 AM until 3:00 PM,  from June 15th to August 31st.

The new law stipulates that there can be no work under the sun in open workplaces from 10:00 AM until 3:30 PM which is an extra 2 hours per day. And this will now be in force from the 1st of June Until September 15th annually. Which is approximately an extra 4 weeks.

The amendment improves the health and safety of workers in open spaces that are exposed to high temperatures, that can cause heat and health stress.

Doctor Al Khal says ‘our steps prevented 1 million more getting COVID-19’.

He goes on to say ‘without the restrictions and public health measures put in place when COVID-19 struck, the impact of the virus on Qatar would have been so serious that it would have overwhelmed the nation’s healthcare system’.

And as one of the few government’s that has actually got it right, I think Qatar deserves a round of applause.

Active cases of COVID-19 are up by 38 on yesterday’s figures at 2,892.

36 of those are travellers coming into the country and testing positive. And they are now in quarantine.

In total 6,505 COVID-19 tests were performed. And 4.09% of those tested positive.
