Turkey under nationwide weekend curfew to fight virus
ANKARA- Anadolu Agency
The weekend-long curfew began on Friday at 9 p.m. and will end on Monday at 5 a.m.
It is the second such curfew in the wake of President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s Nov. 30 announcement of new coronavirus restrictions, including both weekend and weeknight curfews.
Some sectors, including production, supply, health, and agriculture, are exempt from the curfews.
Over the weekend, supermarkets, grocery stores, butchers, and dried fruit shops can open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Bakeries can also open during the weekend curfew.
Meanwhile, on Saturday and Sunday between 10 a.m. and 12 midnight, restaurants can offer delivery service only.
