The UAE has set the attendance in funerals and weddings to 60 people in fresh COVID-19 guidelines.
The National Emergency, Crisis and Disaster Management Authority (NCEMA) spokesperson said guests capacity at such events should be capped at 80 per cent and total attendance shouldn’t exceed 60 people which is in addition to a maximum of 10 people to provide hospitality services.
The authorities have further directed that all attendees should have completed 14 days after receiving their vaccinations and must also follow protocols depending on the type of vaccine they have taken.
The attendees must also present a negative PCR test result no later than 48 hours prior to the date of the event.
The greetings have to be extended without handshakes or hugs, and social distancing norms of one-and-a-half-metre must be followed at all times.
Only a maximum of 10 people will be allowed to be seated at a table and residents suffering from respiratory illnesses or fever have been asked to avoid the events.
