Masks not mandatory anymore in UAE

The wearing of face masks in open spaces have been made optional in the UAE.

Social distancing norms in economic and tourism sites have also been scrapped. However, face masks continue to remain mandatory in closed spaces. The new rules are effective Saturday, February 26.

Close contacts of Covid-19 patients are also not required to undergo quarantine. Instead, they must undergo two PCR tests five days apart.

Isolation protocols for infected individuals will continue as previously announced. In most Emirates, individuals tested positive for Covid-19 usually are mandated to undergo a minimum of ten days isolation.
