The Abu Dhabi Emergency, Crisis and Disasters Committee has issued updated guidelines in light of the Omicron variant. As per the new order, several restrictions have been put into place as a precautionary measure to protect public health and curb the spread of all COVID-19 variants.

The Abu Dhabi Media has announced that the new guidelines will be effective on 27 December 2021. Venues hosting social events are supposed to operate at 60% occupancy. The guest occupancy for all indoor events should not exceed 50 people while open-air and outdoor events should not exceed 150 people. Social events conducted at home should not exceed 30 people.

Strict adherence to existing protocols will apply, as per the announcement. A green pass on Al-Hosn App, presenting a negative PCR test result not older than 48 hours, wearing masks and maintaining social distancing are the rules that will apply as usual.

In addition, the Abu Dhabi Emergency, Crisis and Disasters Committee will raise the bar on inspection and monitoring to maintain low infection rate in the Emirate.
