Covid-19 rules in Dubai for Eid Al Adha family gatherings

Several rules have been implemented in Dubai to help combat the spread of Covid-19, which has recently seen an increase in cases.

The National Emergency Crisis and Disasters Management Authority (NCEMA) has allowed traditional prayers to continue this year as Eid Al Adha approaches. It also specifies the Covid safety guidelines, which worshippers must scrupulously follow.
