Coronavirus: Ras Al Khaimah reopens wedding venues

Ras Al Khaimah will reopen the wedding venues from Tuesday.

Venues must follow a series of strict security measures to contain the spread of Covid-19.

These include reducing capacity from 50 to 30 percent and banning bands while organizers have to get approval.

Each participant must have received a negative PCR test result no later than 48 hours in advance, said the emirate’s economic development department.

Those who received their Covid-19 vaccinations are exempt, but must provide evidence that two weeks have passed since they received the second dose.

Face masks must always be worn and participants must practice social distancing.

Guests who show symptoms of respiratory problems or who have a temperature higher than 38 ° C will not be allowed into the wedding hall.

Previously announced measures, including temperature checks on arrival, will remain in place.

The venues are also sterilized daily and after each use.

Kitchen workers in wedding halls should wear protective masks, gloves, aprons and head caps and change them after each meal.

All wedding and event rooms have been closed since February 10th.

The UAE recorded 1,988 Covid-19 infections on Tuesday, the lowest daily number since March 29.

The country is also preparing for a second Ramadan with restrictions.

The authorities in Ras Al Khaimah announced strict precautions for Covid-19 to be followed during the holy month.

Distributing meals inside or in front of restaurants, houses and mosques is not permitted.

Those looking to serve iftar meals should contact a restaurant or legal nonprofit organization.
