Covid-19 & Ramadan: Dubai to Allow Shopping Malls, Restaurants to Reopen with Restrictions

According to Dubai media office, Dubai will allow the partial opening of shopping centres, and coffee shops and restaurants, during limited hours and with a maximum capacity of 30%.

According to a statement published on Thursday, restaurants will operate but are not permitted to serve shishas or buffets.

Shopping malls will be able to operate partially from 12 p.m. until 10 p.m.

Dubai’s shopping centers include Mall of the Emirates, which has its own indoor ski slope, and Dubai Mall, one of the world’s largest and lies next to Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest structure.

The statement added that Dubai would also resume public transportation services including subways starting Sunday April 26, with preventative measures including wearing facial masks and maintaining appropriate distance between passengers.

Dubai, one of the Gulf country’s seven emirates, had been under a 24-hour curfew since March 26, to help stem the spread of the coronavirus.

The UAE has so far recorded more than 8,000 cases of the novel coronavirus, including 56 virus-related deaths.
