UAE: COVID safety rules for year-end festivities announced

Authorities in the UAE have announced the COVID safety protocols for taking part in Christmas and New Year’s Eve celebrations.

Residents must have a green pass on their AlHosn apps to enter a venue. Additionally, they must have a negative result of a Covid test taken within 96 hours of the event.

Event venues can operate at 80 per cent capacity. Attendees are required to wear masks and maintain a social distance of 1.5 metres. Organisers are required to check the temperature of attendees and regulate entry so as to avoid crowding and gatherings.

Members of the same family can share a spot without social distancing.
