UAE has raised the capacity of shoppers and diners allowed in commercial centers and restaurants to 60 percent while taking into consideration all relevant preventive and precautionary measures.
“No more than four people are allowed at each table, with dining tables to be distanced 2 metres apart” they said in a joint statement which was reported by the UAE News Agency (WAM).
According to the statement, waiting areas should remain closed and outlets must only serve food and drink using disposable cutlery, and hand sanitiser dispensers must be available.
Wearing masks, and gloves is a must while changing them regularly in addition to maintaining safety distance norms and ensuring all working staff are free of COVID-19.
The minister and NCEMA have already allowed children below 12 years in age and people who are not over 70 years old into all commercial centres and restaurants nationwide, reiterating the necessity of taking all COVID-19 countermeasures into consideration to ensure public safety.
