Masks had to be worn at all times when the person was not eating or drinking and a safe distance was put in place.

The Media Regulatory Office of the Ministry of Culture and Youth announced today that cinemas in the UAE can return to maximum capacity from February 15

The full capacity in cinemas means no more gaps between the seats

The National Emergency Crisis and Disasters Management Authority (NCEMA) stated that each emirate could tighten or amend the rules as it deems fit.

Earlier this month, public venues across the country also returned to full capacity. Restrictions of capacity on all activities in the UAE in various economic, entertainment facilities, shopping centres and modes of transportation have seen a gradual lift. Thus, all venues will be allowed to function at maximum capacity and this includes weddings and funerals as well.
