UAE’s national sterilisation drive is complete and movement restrictions have been lifted.
Children under the age of 12 will be allowed in malls and restaurants, although stringent measures must be followed, including social distancing and the wearing of masks, according to Saif Al Dhaheri, spokesperson for the National Emergency, Crisis and Disaster Management Authority, UAE.
The national sterilisation programme included all facilities in the UAE: public transportation and metro service, and the sterilisation of public and private facilities, which will continue in order to preserve the health and safety of the public.
Sticking to COVID-19 precautions, while travelling, people must stick to the three-people-per-car limit, unless it’s a family car.
Al Dhaheri said: “We stress that public gatherings are still prohibited, and avoidance of family visits is preferable to ensure the health and safety of all, commitment to social spacing, wearing masks and gloves when leaving the house.”
