The emirate's Emergency, Crisis and Disasters Committee on Thursday announced a series of rules and guidelines to limit the spread of Covid-19 as the holy month approaches.
They also reminded people in the emirate of the following rules:
1) Masks remains remain mandatory in all indoor places.
2) Only licensed entities are allowed to have Ramadan tents.
3) Observe social distancing.
Authorities also urged people to use electronic payments where possible and to continue to sanitise their hands.
The announcement follows the fortnightly Government Covid-19 briefing on Wednesday, during which UAE authorities announced eased rules for worshippers.
Prayer times have returned to normal, daily mosque lessons and lectures can resume and drinking water can be distributed to worshippers once it is bottled, the National Emergency, Crisis and Disaster Management Authority said.
The taraweeh prayers — night prayers performed during Ramadan — can be held in mosques again and during the last 10 nights of Ramadan, tahajjud prayers will also be held from midnight onwards.
