Tourist destinations in Sharjah to reopen following sterilisation drive

A number of tourist destinations in Sharjah are set to reopen following a sterilisation drive, the Sharjah Investment and Development Authority (Shurooq) has announced.

Al Qasba, Al Majaz Waterfront, Al Noor Island, the Flag Island and the Heart of Sharjah have opened their doors to visitors once again.

The Mleiha Archaeological & Ecotourism Project, Khorfakkan Beach, Maraya Art Centre and 1971-Design Space are also now open.

To keep visitors safe, all visitors will have their temperatures taken before they can enter the facilities, and you must wear a mask at all times.

There will be regular disinfections of all areas during opening hours, plus a walk-through sanitisation booth.

Food and beverage outlets will only be allowed to operate at 30 percent capacity, and there will be clear and visible two metre physical distancing stickers.

Those who are aged above 60, or 12 and below, will not be allowed into any of Shurooq’s destinations.

Ahmed Obaid Al Qaseer, COO of Shurooq, said, “As we embark on the reopening phase of our leisure destinations, as well as welcoming our guests across our prime hospitality properties, the health and safety of our guests and staff remain paramount.

“We are therefore working closely with the government authorities to ensure that the highest standards of hygiene are maintained, and that all recommended precautionary and preventive measures are in place for our guests to enjoy a well-rounded destination experience.”
