Measures Egypt

After the summer months, the number of Covid-19 cases has started to increase in Egypt. Consequently new measures were put in place such as the closing of businesses at 10 pm (excluding pharmacies and supermarkets). In addition to social distancing regulations, wearing masks in public spaces is compulsory, subjected to large fines.

Current Measures in The Cultural Sector

The cultural agenda of Egypt includes many interesting activities this fall. All art and culture programmes are in line with the safety measures against Covid-19: some festivals, exhibitions, concerts and other social gatherings are organised indoors or outside with half capacity, or in a hybrid form, combining online and physical activities.

Highlights of the fall season include: El Gouna Film Festival, Festival and Conference of Arabic Music in various venues including Cairo Opera House, Cairo Jazz Festival, Animatex Festival, and Cairo International Film Festival.
