Some public spaces will be open to the public from Friday, July 3.

Precautionary and preventive measures and protocols are being strictly enforced to ensure public safety.

The Department of Municipalities and Transport (DMT), in coordination with the National Emergency Crisis and Disasters Management Authority (NCEMA), said this first phase covers the Umm Al Emarat Park, Khalifa Park-Abu Dhabi, Salimi Park in Al Ain, and Madinat Zayed Public Park in Al Dhafrah. 

The Corniche Public Beach, Al Hudayriat Beach and Al Al Mirfa Beach in Al Dhafrah are also included.

Visitors must book in advance via the smart services platform (Smart Hub); and have their temperature taken on arrival; those with over 37.5 C will be denied access.

Face masks are mandatory at all the times and social distancing of two metres will be enforced; a maximum of four people are permitted to mingle in each group.

The car park capacity is reduced to 50 per cent and seating has been arranged to maintain social distancing protocols.

In addition, F&B outlets will operate at 30 per cent seating capacity, with a maximum of four people allowed per table; tables have to be distanced a minimum of 2.5m apart. 

The outlets may only serve food and drink using disposable cutlery, and hand sanitiser dispensers must be available. 

All rented equipment, seats and dining tables have to be regularly cleaned and sanitised after each use.

Staff must wear masks and gloves all the times, ensure taking their body temperatures regularly and keep a safety distance of two metres.
