During these hours, the public were instructed to stay at home unless it was absolutely necessary to go out or to get essential supplies, such as food and medicines.

The committee on Thursday advised all community members to continue to adhere to precautionary measures to protect public health and safety.

Capacity in restaurants and cafés in the emirate have been increased to 80 per cent, allowing up to 10 people to sit at one table, while that of community and sport events, corporate events such as exhibitions and conferences, and entertainment events including theatre plays and concerts, has been increased to 60 per cent.

The capacity at wedding halls has been raised to 60 per cent, with a maximum of 100 people in the hall.
public transportation was increased to 75 per cent. However, the committee maintained the cap on the operating capacities in health clubs, sports academies, gyms, and spas at 50 per cent.
