UAE Government announces all National Day, Christmas and New Year gatherings banned due to Covid-19 measures

The UAE Government reminded residents that National Day, Christmas Day and New Year gatherings are still banned due to Covid-19 measures.

The UAE’s National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority re-affirmed the measures at the weekly media briefing.

Dr. Saif Al Dhaheri, the spokesman of the National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority, said: “With the UAE National Day, Christmas Day and New Year’s Eve celebrations approaching, we stress the importance of adhering to precautionary and preventive health and safety measures during all activities to tackle COVID-19”.

“Concerts can be held only after receiving approval from authorities and only with the application of all precautionary measures. Also, workplace celebrations are cancelled and restricted to the hanging of decorations, flags and banners only, while gatherings to watch shows such as fireworks are not permitted,” Al Dhaheri said.

The briefing also reminded residents that private gatherings are still banned and social distancing should be maintained at all times.

Official events are still allowed to take place as long as they follow the strict guidelines including hand washing, masks and social distancing.
