Dubai’s Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM) has issued a new circular stating that all large-group activities such as weekend brunches must be postponed. Additionally, no music can be played in hotel venues.
In an email from DTCM, the new regulations specify that “venues should postpone any activity that leads to large gatherings such as weekend brunches”.
The same circular also clarified that restaurants must reduce their capacity as well as malls and hotels. Bars and pubs must close effectively immediately; these measures will be in place from Tuesday, February 2 until Sunday, February 28.
