Dubai's Waterfront Market in Deira has reopened to the public after local authorities gave the retail centre the all-clear to resume operations.

The market, which features fresh fish, meat, fruit and vegetables, will open from 6 AM to 8 PM each day.

The reopening of the Waterfront Market comes with some extra precautionary health and safety measures that will help stop the spread of Covid-19. This includes a dedicated hygiene team who will carry out a 24-hour cleaning programme, covering all common areas in the market.

The market has also had thermal cameras installed at all entrances, as well as multiple hand sanitiser units at various locations in the premises.

In accordance with current regulations in Dubai, all customers and staff will have to engage in socials distancing, and wear both masks and gloves. Admission to the building is limited to one family member, with no children allowed to enter.

“In light of Covid-19 we have taken additional precautionary measures across the entire property to further ensure the health and safety of all our customers, staff and the wider community,” said Mohammad Al Madani, Waterfront Market manager.

“We encourage our community to practice physical distancing and stay safe during these unprecedented times."
