DUBAI – The Abu Dhabi government announced that the public will no longer need to present a negative Covid-19 test result if they want to visit the emirate’s public beaches and parks.
The Abu Dhabi Media Office published the announcement late on Friday (July 3).
“Showing a negative Covid-19 test result is no longer required to access reopened public beaches and parks in Abu Dhabi,” it said.
Visitors, however, are required to observe physical distancing and precautionary measures, including the wearing of masks.
On June 29, authorities announced that UAE residents who want to enter Abu Dhabi will need to present a negative Coronavirus test result issued within 48 hours.
The new rule was announced by the Abu Dhabi Emergency, Crisis and Disaster Committee for the Covid-19 Pandemic, in collaboration with Abu Dhabi Police and Department of Health. This means only Covid-free residents may be allowed to enter the emirate. ICA/Expat Media
