Social events in Sharjah not allowed until end of July

Sharjah has extended its ban on all social events until the end of July, the Sharjah Executive Council has announced.

Celebrations held in wedding halls, event halls, hotels, and government and community facilities are not permitted.

The decision is part of precautionary measures to stop the spread of coronavirus in the emirate, and could be extended if necessary.

Sharjah has been easing a number of restrictions in recent weeks, most recently allowing cinemas, gyms and other entertainment centres to reopen.

Malls, salons and restaurants reopened at the start of May, with reduced capacity and strict sanitisation rules.

The UAE’s national sterilisation campaign, which saw curfews introduced across the emirates, has also now finished.

Plus, residents can now travel out of the UAE.
