All economic sectors in Dubai can return to normal working hours as they were before the Covid-19 outbreak, Dubai Economy announced on Thursday.
The announcement comes after the UAE announced on Wednesday that it had completed the National Sterilisation Programme, which restricted movement from 11pm to 6am in Dubai.
Dubai Economy stressed that precautionary measures, such as placing physical-distancing stickers, wearing masks and gloves, providing sterilisation devices, and checking body temperature will have to continue.
Restrictions on public gatherings, the advisory on avoiding family visits, limiting the number of passengers in a car to three (except for family members), and the need to wear a face mask if more than one person is in the car, will also remain in place.
Dubai Economy also encouraged the use of smart and contactless payment methods.
Inspection teams will monitor stores, commercial establishments and shopping centres to ensure that guidelines are being adhered to.
دبي ترحب بكم من جديد!
