Life in Dubai is slowly starting to go back to normal, as the emirate announced shopping malls and private sector businesses are now allowed to operate at full capacity.
The government has started easing restrictions throughout the emirate and as of today (June 3) business are no longer required to stick to the 30 percent cap.
Despite the 635 new cases that were reported on June 1, the announcement to increase the capacity of malls and private businesses back to pre-COVID-19 was made by the emirate’s Supreme Committee of Crisis and Disaster Management, which is under the direction of HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum.
Confirming the city is truly well on its way to fully reopening, Crown Prince HH Sheikh Hamdan took to Instagram yesterday to provide a glimpse of what is “coming soon.” Leaving his followers with some semblance of both normality and optimism, he Instagrammed a photo of his first-class ticket to London, hinting that big changes could be happening in the near future.
Both shopping malls and private sector businesses will still have to adhere to the emirate’s curfew—operating no earlier than 6:00 and no later than 23:00. Staff members and customers will still be required to continue abiding by safety regulations and social distancing measures at all times.
