Saudi Arabia eased COVID-19 restrictions on face masks among other curbs starting from Oct. 17, the interior ministry said on Friday.

Saudi has also lifted social distancing measures and now allows full-capacity attendance at the country's two Holy Mosques in Mecca and Medina for those who have taken the full dose of vaccines, the ministry added.

Masks are no longer mandatory at public open places while still imposed at closed venues, including the Holy Mosque area.

The move was taken in response to a drop in daily infections and a considerable development in vaccinations.

The authorities also canceled curbs on fully vaccinated people at closed venues, gatherings, transportation, restaurants and cinemas.
