Dubai hotel beaches are set to reopen today after weeks of closing down as part of government-enforced measures to tackle coronavirus, according to Arabian Business.
While hotel beaches can re-open, bars, sauna and steam facilities, nightclubs and spa facilities must remain closed, according to new guidelines for hotels distributed by Dubai’s government on May 12.
It is also understood that authorities are considering an increase in restaurant capacity, which has been capped at 30% since the lifting of the 24-hour lockdown in April.
In its latest update to businesses on guidelines and protocols, Dubai Economy said the 30% will remain in place, along with social distancing rules that include placing tables 2 metres apart for all customers or set up separators/screens between tables. It added that take away is highly encouraged.
Hotel beaches and restaurants in the UAE’s Northern Emirates like Ajman and Ras Al Khaimah have been open and operating with certain restrictions.
