Capacity of malls and restaurants in Abu Dhabi has been raised to 40 percent.

The capacity of malls and restaurants in Abu Dhabi has been raised to 40 percent as the emirate eases a number of restrictions that were put in place to combat Covid-19, authorities have announced.

In a tweet, the Abu Dhabi Media Office announced that hotel beaches, museums and restaurants outside malls will also be re-opening.

Additionally, people between the ages of 12 and 60 will be able to practice sports including horse riding, track cycling, cricket, cycling, athletics, golf, tennis and sailing.

In a separate announcement, authorities said that sports facilities must install thermal devices at entrances and training sites.

Participants will be required to maintain social distance of two metres, and wear masks and gloves. Equipment must be sterilised.

Additionally, using technology such as the Al Hosn app is advised.

“The plan will see institutions evaluated and based on their adherence to precautionary measures and health and safety standards, which will determine transition to the next stage,” the statement added.

Last week, the Dubai Sports Council announced a similar re-start of sports training.
