UAE issues new Covid guidelines for Eid celebrations

The UAE National Emergency Crisis and Disasters Management Authority has issued fresh guidelines for Eid prayers and celebrations.  

  • The duration of the prayer and Khutba must not exceed 20 minutes.
  • Worshipers are to be supervised by police patrols, volunteers and imams to prevent overcrowding.
  • Use personal or disposable worship carpets.
  • Gates of mosques must be opened after the dawn prayer on the day of Eid for Eid prayer, provided that external speakers can broadcast the Eid takbeers half an hour before the prayer.
  • We stress the necessity of obligating worshipers to wear face masks at all times and follow physical distancing at a distance of one meter.
  • Avoid gathering and shaking hands after prayers.
  • Outside areas of mosques must display physical distancing stickers with the possibility of gathering in parks and parking lots nearing mosques.
  • Wearing face masks and practicing social distancing, especially when nearby vulnerable groups.
  • Limit celebrations to immediate family members and relatives.
  • Ensuring a valid green pass on the Al-Hosn app.
  • We urge the public to use electronic alternatives for giving Eid presents.
