Starting last week, Tunisia has slowly begun relaxing lockdown protocols, reopening some restaurants, resuming some construction and transportation, and allowing half of government employees to return to work. Shopping centers, clothing retailers, and barbershops and hairdressers are due to reopen on May 24th, 2020.

The Tunisian government estimates that the economy could shrink by up to 4.3%, and could mark the steepest decline since the nation's independence in 1956. Local media estimates that about 400,000 jobs related to tourism could be lost this year due to the pandemic, wiping off the equivalent of 1.4 billion United States dollars from the sector.
