The decision is part of the gradual reopening of economic activities in the emirate and efforts to restore normalcy, while ensuring precautionary measures are strictly enforced to protect the safety and wellbeing of employees, visitors and customers at shopping malls and companies.

As restrictions began to ease over the past few weeks, all individuals and businesses have been required to adhere to preventative measures, including maintaining social distancing and wearing face masks, to avoid any further spread of the virus.

Mandatory measures include frequently sterilising all facilities and common areas in malls, providing sanitisers across the mall and its entrances, and screening people's temperature at entrances to identify suspected cases and take necessary measures.

Posters with safety protocols across shopping centres and security guards on duty ensured residents maintained a safe social distance of two metres from one another.
