The number of guests at  wedding ceremonies is restricted to 10, while 20 people will be allowed to gather for funerals and mourning services.

The committee further recommended intensifying inspection and monitoring of all sectors to ensure compliance with precautionary measures, and reporting violators to the Attorney-General.

On Saturday, officials confirmed that workplace attendance at Abu Dhabi government and semi-government entities has been reduced to 30 per cent, as a safety measure to help protect the health of employees and their families.
