To curb the spread of COVID-19 in United Arab Emirates (UAE) they decided to close several establishments throughout the country.

For two weeks, shoppers will no longer be able to go to malls as these establishments were among the ones to be close to stop the spread of the new coronavirus which has affected the lives of millions of people all over the world.

Other than malls, commercial centers, vegetable, meat and fish markets will also be close for the time being. However, wholesalers are not included in this temporary closure.

The said closure has been disclosed to the public by the Ministry of Health and Prevention as well as the National Emergency and Crisis and Disasters Management.

Moreover, restaurants will not be accepting customers. Thus, orders will only be done online or through calls and will be delivered directly to your home address.

The closure will take effect on March 25 but will be subject to re-assessment.

In addition to the precautionary measure implemented by the government to fight the spread of COVID-19, ALL FLIGHTS – outbound, inbound and transit flights – is suspended for 2 weeks, except cargo and evacuation flights. The suspension will be effective on March 25, 2020.
