Tehran/UNI: Cafes and restaurants reopened in Iran on Tuesday after a COVID induced closure of two months to curb the spread of the pandemic.

Mohsen Farhadi, Deputy Health Minister, on Tuesday said that all the restaurants will restart their activities observing certain health protocols, reports Xinhua news agency.

Besides, the cafes will begin their services without offering tobacco, Farhadi said in a video press conference.

The use of ''hookah'' is very popular in the Iranian tea houses and cafes.

Meanwhile, all workers in the country will return to work from May 30.

Iran has gradually eased restrictions on economy and cultural activities since early April.

As of Tuesday, the country, one of the worst-hit in the Middle East, reported 137,724 COVID-19 cases, with 7,451 deaths.
