Following an extensive period of sterilisation, the Department of Municipalities and Transport (DMT) has announced that some public parks and beaches will reopen from July 3 in Abu Dhabi.
Pre-booking through the SmartHub platform is required for entry to the beaches and public parks in Abu Dhabi, Al Ain and Al Dhafra region. Visitors must also update their health status on the AL HOSN app confirming they have tested negative for Covid-19.
This is in addition to undergoing a body temperature check when entering the facilities. All facilities will operate at 40 per cent occupancy.
The announcement follows the recent unveiling of DMT’s first-of-its-kind campaign – The Hygienic City with the slogan #itstartswithyou. The campaign reminds every resident that they have a vital role to play in preventing the virus from spreading and that wearing a face mask is a must.
The reopening of these public facilities is the first stage in the reopening of all DMT’s amenities and other reopenings will be announced at a later stage via all media outlets, including social media.
