The National Emergency Crisis And Disasters Management Authority (NCEMA) has announced the completion of the national sterilisation programme, and that all restrictions of movement in place throughout the day and night have been lifted. Up until now, residents of Dubai were required to stay home during between 11pm and 6am each ay and between 10pm and 6am in the other emirates.
Official spokesperson for NCEMA, Dr Saif Al Dhaheri, also confirmed that children under the age of 12 are allowed into malls and restaurants across the UAE.
People are still advised that the preventative and precautionary measures are still in place, and penalties and fines will be imposed if they are not followed.
Public gatherings are prohibited, and people should not visit family and friends in order to ensure the health and safety of all. Masks and gloves should be worn outside the home and maintaining a safe social distance should continue.
No more than three people are allowed in a car at the same time, unless they are members of the same of the same family.
Though the national sterilisation programme is complete, sterilisation of public and private facilities will continue in order to preserve the health and safety of the public.
The entry into Abu Dhabi is still in place, and is only allowed with certain exceptions.
