Abu Dhabi will reopen some parks and public beaches from Friday (July 3), at a 40 per cent capacity, with all generic precautionary and preventive measures and protocols to be strictly enforced to ensure public safety.

The Department of Municipalities and Transport (DMT), in coordination with the National Emergency Crisis and Disasters Management Authority (NCEMA), said this first phase of reopening will cover the Umm Al Emarat Park, Khalifa Park-Abu Dhabi, Salimi Park in Al Ain, and Madinat Zayed Public Park in Al Dhafrah. Included in the first phase as well are the Corniche Public Beach, Al Hudayriat Beach and Al Al Mirfa Beach in Al Dhafrah.

Other reopenings will be announced at a later stage via various media outlets, including social media platforms.

The two authorities outlined a number of restrictions all visitors of these sites have to comply with, including prior booking via the smart services platform (Smart Hub); presenting the COVID-19 testing result via Alhosn App upon entry; and taking body temperature upon arrival; those with over 37.5 C shall be denied access.
