The progression of the COVID-19 pandemic in Morocco (7740 cases confirmed on 31-05-2020, www.covidmaroc. ma for more information) has led to the declaration of a state of health emergency by the public authorities as an unavoidable measure to limit the spread of the virus.
A series of preventive directives have been put in place to guarantee the application of the state of emergency which began on March 20 and was extended to May 20.
Main measures have been the closure of borders, schools, mosques, hammams, restaurants, cafes and shops (except commercial activities and vital services), the restriction of movement and prohibition of gatherings to ensure social distancing, including a daily curfew during Ramadan at 6 p.m. and the mandatory use of masks since April 7.
