The Abu Dhabi Emergency, Crisis and Disasters Committee has approved a return to 100 percent operating capacity in all commercial activities, tourist attractions, and events in the Emirate.

However, facemasks must be worn in indoor spaces.

Authorities have also announced announced updated Covid-19 safety protocols for the upcoming Eid-Al-Fitr festival.

Worshippers have been advised to wear face masks and maintain social distancing norms while attending early morning Eid-Al-Fitr prayers.

Citizens and residents must maintain a valid Green Pass on the Al Hosn mobile application, and vulnerable groups must be careful.

As the faithful get ready for the Eid Al Fitr celebrations they had missed over the last two years, a Grand Mufti in Dubai called on residents to still keep safety in mind.

With Covid restrictions eased and the number of cases under control for months now, residents will be marking an Eid that is ‘closest to normal’. Bigger crowds can be expected at mosques and musallahs during the prayers, while family gatherings and meet-ups with friends are now on people’s lists.
