As a precautionary measure, the authorities of the Expo 2020 Dubai have decided to suspend daily parades among few other activities in a bid to mitigate the risk of COVID-19.

Several close-contact events like parades and roving entertainments have been suspended temporarily in light of the Omicron variant. Frontline workers and entertainers will be tested regularly as a precautionary measure along with free tests for the pavilion staff.
