While restrictions have been eased over the past few days, Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed’s message is a timely reminder that we are still in the midst of the pandemic.

This week in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, we are beginning to see restrictions from the 24-hour National Sterilisation Programme ease. Shopping malls, restaurants and salons are now permitted to reopen, and people allowed outside to exercise for up to two hours each day.

If you are visiting family during Ramadan, the latest guidelines ask that you limit group gatherings to no more than five people. Special care should be taken when visiting the elderly or those with chronic health conditions.
