Eid Al Fitr will begin on Monday in the UAE, the moon-sighting committee announced on Saturday.

Government workers will have a week-long holiday during Eid, while private-sector workers will have a holiday from Saturday, April 30, until Wednesday, May 4.

Last week, the authorities announced Covid-19 protocol for celebrating Eid.

It includes having an active green pass on Al Hosn app, following precautionary measures, such as wearing wear face masks at all times, and maintaining physical distancing when going for Eid prayers.

Prayers must not exceed 20 minutes and the gates of mosques should be opened after dawn prayers.

The National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority said the public should give Eid presents through electronic means and people should try to limit celebrations to immediate family members and close friends.
