Covid-19 safety rules during prayers

Authorities in the UAE have announced Covid-19 safety protocols during Eid-Al-Fitr prayers.

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

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

While the UAE and its leadership have contained the pandemic through several means, including widespread testing, tracking people exposed to cases, and ensuring isolation of the infected and social distancing, caution must be exercised, warned the National Emergency Crisis and Disasters Management Authority (NCEMA).
