- Soft play areas
- Indoor and inflatable playgrounds
- Virtual reality and edutainment facilities

Although, please note that parties and social gathering at these facilities are still NOT permitted
Designated play areas for small children and toddlers will remain shut until further notice.
On another note, summer camps held at kids centres, schools, hotels, sports clubs and gyms, libraries and art centres can reopen. However, nurseries are still not allowed to host any activities.
Massage and spa services in hotel facilities and inside malls can reopen.
However, steam rooms, saunas, ice rooms, jacuzzis, Moroccan bath facilities and Turkish hammams will remain shut.
