As UAE residents are preparing to ring in 2022, ahead of this year’s New Year’s celebrations Dubai’s Supreme Committee of Crisis and Disaster Management has announced new guidelines for those venturing out on 31st December.
In Dubai, fireworks will take place in 29 locations across the city in order to reduce the gathering of crowds in certain locations.
Amongst the new rules and regulations, those found not wearing masks will be fined AED3,000 and social distancing rules must be followed.
The measures were announced under the directives of Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of The Executive Council of Dubai, the committee, and Sheikh Mansoor bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum who met on Tuesday to decide on the measures for the upcoming celebrations.
Sheikh Mansoor said preventive measures continue to be enforced as part of the Dubai Government’s efforts to safeguard the health of citizens, residents and visitors.
“Dubai has continuously monitored local and global developments to take the decisive action necessary to protect the community and implement precautionary measures outlined by local and international health authorities. Every member of the community should stringently observe the preventive guidelines in place, including wearing face masks and observing social distancing, to protect their families and others,” Sheikh Mansoor said.
Thanks to the ongoing efforts of the Dubai authorities residents can celebrate in safety and style as they ring in the new year.
