No entertainment activities will be allowed on board vessels or floating restaurants, according to an advisory issued by the Dubai Maritime City Authority (DMCA).

The suspension of these activities is in keeping with the suspension of all entertainment permits in the emirate on Thursday.

The DMCA issued a circular on Thursday temporarily suspending entertainment activities on board vessels and floating restaurants "until further notice".

The authority noted that move is “in compliance with the updated government directions for precautions and preventive measures to counter Covid-19".

There will be an "emphasis on social distancing,” it said, in a post published on its official Twitter handle.

“DMCA will continuously monitor and evaluate the situation in coordination with the concerned authorities in the Dubai Government,” it added.
