In the wake of the ‘Omicron’ variant of COVID-19 virus, the Abu Dhabi Emergency, Crisis and Disasters Committee updates safety protocols to protect public health.

Until further notice, a restriction on the guest capacity for indoor and outdoor events including weddings has been imposed as a precautionary measure.

The capacity for indoor events has been limited to 80%. However, a Green Pass on Al Hosn app must be produced by all attendees along with a negative PCR report that is received within 96 hours.

As extra precaution, guests attending all indoor events will have to go through the hand-held EDE scan that must be set up at entry points. Wearing a face-mask has been made mandatory.

The maximum capacity of attendees at wedding halls is regulated to 60% and weddings hosted at home shall accommodate only 60 guests. While the operating capacity at indoor halls must not exceed 100 guests, outdoor weddings must not exceed 300 guests.
