UAE restricts exhibitions, sports events to Covid-19 vaccinated residents
All kinds of events and exhibitions in the UAE are restricted to Covid-vaccinated residents only, a top official announced on Tuesday.
These include sports, cultural, social and art events.
Addressing the weekly Covid-19 briefing, Dr. Farida Al Hosani, official spokesperson for the UAE Health Sector, said attendees would need to present a Covid-negative result of a PCR test taken no more than 48 hours prior to attending the events.
Residents must have the active letter E on the UAE’s Covid tracing app Al Hosn to gain entry to events.
Vaccinated residents get the letter E on the Al Hosn app 28 days after receiving the second dose of the Covid-19 vaccine. It remains active for only seven days after. To renew the status, they would need to take a Covid-19 PCR test, which extends it for another seven days.
