COVID-19 restrictions have been eased in Dubai, authorities said on Thursday. However, there are some rules that are still applicable for the safety and health of the public.
Restaurants and cafés are allowed to open for the public but still not allowed to hold buffets or to serve shisha.
Restaurants will be using only 30% of the outlet’s capacity and will apply a two-metre physical distance between tables.
All diners and staff should be wearing masks at all times.
Also, restaurants are asked to use single-use cutlery and to provide food delivery services between 10 pm and 6 am.
Dubai would also resume public transportation services including subways starting Sunday, April 26, with preventative measures including wearing facial masks and maintaining appropriate distance between passengers.
UAE has so far recorded more than 8,000 cases of the novel coronavirus, including 56 virus-related deaths.
