DUBAI: As Dubai parks and public beaches reopen, Dubai Municipality has stressed on the need to adhere to precautionary measures.

A video message by Dubai Media Office tweeted last night tells the public what to expect if they’re headed to the parks over the weekend.

As the video shows, all parks now have instructions by Dubai Municipality clearly displayed: Wear face masks, disposable gloves, maintain two metres social distance and use hand sanitisers before entry and exit. Also be prepared to get your temperature recorded when you enter. Make sure you stand on the allocated spaces while buying tickets, viewing galleries etc.

Keep within stipulated capacities in any space, whether it’s outdoors, indoors, even inside elevators.
