The Founder's Memorial in Fujairah has also reopened on Sunday
Starting Sunday October 4th, 2020, the doors to the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi will reopen to the public. According to Emirates News Agency WAM, Fujairah's Founder's Memorial, a tribute to the late Sheikh Zayed, will also join the mosque in reopening for all visitors.
Both of the tourist sites have been closed since March 15 as part of the UAE authorities' health and safety measures against the Covid-19 outbreak.
Those looking to enter the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque or the Founder's Memorial will be required to keep in mind the safety measures in place. To ensure a safe experience for all, both sites have established thermal screening cameras, maximum visitor capacities, informative signage, and mandatory online booking prior to a visit.
To prevent crowding, as well as to ensure physical distancing, group tours will not be available just yet.
