The National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority (NCEMA), took to their official social media accounts and mentioned, “We announce the decision to gradually cancel restrictions covering all activities and events in #UAE in various economic, tourism & entertainment facilities, as well as in shopping centres & modes of transportation, aimed at reaching their full capacities by mid-February.”
Thus, all venues will be allowed to function at maximum capacity and this includes weddings and funerals as well.
This latest directive was issued in light of COVID-19 cases dropping in the country, as active cases stand at 68,923 as of Wednesday, Feb 9. Social distancing at places of worship has been reduced to 1-metre.
