Authorities in Algeria have amended the existing nightly curfew in Algiers Province and eased restrictions related to COVID-19. The new curfew hours will run from 2200 to 0500 nightly through at least Feb. 15. Authorities will also allow a number of non-essential businesses, including salons and appliance stores, to remain open till 2100 daily beginning Feb. 3.

Authorities in Algeria previously extended the nation's existing 2000-0500 nightly curfew in 19 provinces, including Oran, Tebessa, and Constantine, through at least Feb. 15. Sports halls, cultural centers, beaches, and entertainment venues will be closed in these areas during the curfew.

Authorities have allowed several types of businesses and services to reopen nationwide, including construction companies, real estate agencies, travel agencies, fruit markets, bakeries, hair salons, car rental companies, and government institutions. Restaurants have also reopened in provinces where officials have lifted lockdown measures. Residents must wear protective face coverings when in public, including in vehicles.

National rail services are operating, with passengers subject to body temperature scans before boarding trains.

Public transport is operational in all 48 of the nation's provinces; taxis and app-based ride-sharing services have also resumed operations, albeit under certain capacity limitations. However, a ban on public and private vehicle traffic between provinces remains in place on weekends. Freight transport continues to operate normally.
