Previously, the government permitted waterparks in Dubai to reopen. Dubai Municipality has mandated operators of waterparks and water attractions in Dubai to ensure that all such facilities as slides, rides and pools undergo deep cleaning and water quality tests before they open gates.
Atlantis Aquaventure will be the first waterpark opening gates after lockdown. In keeping with the UAE government guidelines, Atlantis Aquaventure will be operating at 50 percent capacity. It is worth noting that tickets have to be booked in advance – they won’t be available at the gate.
Among 38 rules there are social distancing, wearing face shields and masks when not in the pools or play zones, in addition, visitors have to bring their own towels and accessories when they visit waterparks, as they won’t be allowed to use these items from the facilities.

The government issued special guidelines to waterpark operators that prevent visitors from sharing personal items that were contacted with the face and they are difficult to clean, sanitize, or disinfect, like goggles, nose clips, and snorkels.
Novel Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2, also known as COVID-19) is a new strain of coronavirus which is causing illness in humans and animals. Most people infected with the COVID-19 coronavirus will feel mild to moderate respiratory illness and recover without any special treatment. Older people, as well as those with underlying medical problems like cardiovascular disease, chronic respiratory disease, cancer or diabetes, are more likely to develop serious illness, and require immediate assistance. Novel Coronavirus was first identified in a cluster with pneumonia symptoms in Wuhan city, Hubei province of China, quickly spreading around the world. On early March 2020, the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic had officially started, becoming the defining global health crisis of our time. Today, it is the greatest challenge people have faced since World War II, worsened by subsequent lockdowns of whole countries, collapse of entire industries, and a major economic recession.
