Abu Dhabi announced on Sunday that venues hosting social events such as wedding ceremonies, funerals, and family gatherings will operate at 60% capacity, effective December 26.
A committee established by the Abu Dhabi Emergency, Crisis, and Disasters Authority has updated its guidelines for hosting indoor and outdoor events, as well as celebrating holidays in the emirate, to enhance precautionary measures and protect public health.
During indoor events, the maximum number of attendees should not exceed 50, while outdoor activities and open-air events should not exceed 150. For social events at home, the maximum number of attendees should not exceed 30.
In the meantime, members of the public entering social events need to adhere to the existing precautionary measures, including showing one’s green pass on Alhosn App, presenting that their PCR test result was negative within 48 hours, and wearing masks while observing physical distance.
To ensure compliance with all preventive and precautionary measures and to help maintain a low Covid-19 infection rate in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, the Authority will increase inspections and monitoring.
People are urged to continue observing precautions by avoiding crowded spaces, wearing masks that cover both nose and mouth, keeping a distance of at least 2 metres, and regularly washing and sanitizing their hands.
In addition, the Committee strongly recommends that those eligible receive a booster vaccine dose, and continue to maintain a green status on Alhosn App through regular PCR testing.
