The UAE shuts all restaurants, cafes, and bars for two weeks

The UAE shuts all restaurants, cafes, and bars for two weeks - Coming Soon in UAE
23 March 2020

As a part of preventive measures, all restaurants, cafes, cafeterias, coffee shops, and bars will be closed for two weeks starting from Monday, 23 March 2020.

The UAE government decided to undertake a series of additional precautionary measures to stop the spread of COVID-19. Despite constant disinfections, distancing of the tables, and disposable tableware, all food and beverage outlets have to close down their dine-in operations.

Food service establishments can continue to provide delivery under the condition they abide by the required sterilization and public health procedures. Restaurants and cafes at hotels and hotel apartments will be serving the in-house guests only, and operate food delivery as well, strictly following safety requirements.

Outdoor and self-order kiosks are exempted. Residents are urged to stay at home except for emergencies. Authorities say that they should step out only to buy groceries or medicines. The UAE Ministry of Interior and the National Emergency Crisis and Disasters Management Authority advises everyone not to visit hospitals except for critical or emergency cases and use face masks.

The situation will be reviewed in two weeks.
