All cultural activities, including concerts and parties, are forbidden due to the spike in COVID-19 cases, the Ministry of Culture and Communication announced in a statement Tuesday.

The state of health emergency has also been extended to 15 more days, the statement reads. 

Anyone who goes against the COVID-19 protocols will face disciplinary measures from law enforcement or judicial institutions, the government said. The statement doesn’t specify what the disciplinary measures are.
