In order to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 and due to the spike of coronavirus cases in Iraq, the Federal Minister of Health announced on 6 June 2020 that the full lockdown is extended until 13 June 2020, then replacing it with a partial curfew on 14 June 2020 from 6 p.m. to 5 a.m. The decision also prevents the movement between the provinces, except for the health, security and public service personnel.
The conditions imposed in this regard may vary between different provinces and areas. The Embassy of Switzerland in Jordan, accredited to Iraq, encourages all its citizens to inform themselves through official channels about the measures in place in their region.
