Dubai public parks opened for gatherings of five people or less from Tuesday in the latest easing of restrictions in place to curb the spread of Covid-19 in the UAE.

The latest Supreme Committee of Crisis and Disaster Management update also allow the refund and return of goods and use of fitting rooms in shopping malls and retail outlets, on the condition that strict precautionary conditions aimed at ensuring the safety of customers are observed.

All previous preventive measures in shopping malls and retail outlets still apply, the update said

Hotels are allowed to reopen their private beaches only to their guests while enforcing stringent preventive measures, the most important of which is mandatory physical distancing between individuals.

Trams and maritime transport, including the Dubai Ferry, water taxis, both traditional and air-conditioned abras, and car-sharing services can resume operations, according to timelines specified by the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA).

In addition, sports and recreational activities will be permitted in open spaces for up to five people, including cycling, water sports and skydiving. Comprehensive preventive measures have to be maintained while engaging in these sporting activities.

Officials stressed the need to continue following all precautionary and preventive measures outlined by authorities, both local and federal. Strictly adopting and observing these measures at all times is critical to enhance protection and support efforts to reduce the spread of the virus, they said.
