The Abu Dhabi Department of Economic Development (ADDED) has issued a new circular extending the temporary closure of shopping malls, open markets, cinemas, game arcade and other recreational destinations in the emirate of Abu Dhabi until further notice.

The move serves as a continuation of the preventive and precautionary measures being implemented to help combat the spread of the Covid-19 and further maintain the health, safety and security of community members.

Mohammed Ali Al Shorafa, Chairman of ADDED, said that the newly issued circular is being implemented in cooperation and coordination with the National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority and the Ministry of Health and Prevention. 

Al Shorafa added that other circulars that ADDED has released, including the suspension of valet parking services; closure of fitness and body building halls; and the banning of hookah (shisha) in restaurants and cafes will continue to remain in effect until further notice.

Facilities and establishments are ordered to comply and adhere to the directives in the circular- starting from the issuance date of the order and until further notice. Continuous coordination is also urged between these facilities with relevant authorities, especially with concerns related to the health and safety of community members of Abu Dhabi and the rest of the UAE.
