Abu Dhabi Reopens Hotel Facilities - Coming Soon in UAE
25 May 2020

By following all preventive measures and passing DCT inspections, hotels will be allowed to open their facilities.

The Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi (DCT) has issued guidelines for the reopening of particular hotel facilities such as restaurants, lounges, bars, beaches, pools, and gyms. Since March, all the facilities were closed as part of the emirate’s efforts to curb the spread of COVID-19.

Now, every hotel must comply with an extensive list of hygiene and safety requirements:

• adherence to social distance rules (obligatory markers on the floor, escalators and elevators);

• entertainment events are prohibited, venues are limited to 30 percent capacity and a cap on visit durations lasting three hours;

• restricted opening hours of 06:00 AM to 07:00 PM;

• periodic and rigorous sterilization of facilities and available hand sanitizer;

• installed thermal cameras and enforcement of PPE use for all staff members and guests;

• all returning employees must pass the COVID-19 test, with routine testing every two weeks subsequent to that. The staff has to undergo frequent temperature checks.

Ali Hassan Al Shaiba, Executive Director of Tourism and Marketing at DCT Abu Dhabi said that guidelines were developed “to cover general precautional measures, social distancing rules, crowd control measures and rules for returning employees in order to resume hotels’ operation safely”.
