Abu Dhabi tourism sets guidelines for cultural sites to re-open


The Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi (DCT Abu Dhabi) has issued strict health and safety guidelines and precautionary measures in preparation for the reopening of a number of museums and cultural sites in the emirate. The openings form part of plans to help communities and visitors recover from the strain of the prolonged period of lockdown which was imposed in the last few months, as per media reports. 

The guidelines, which require each site to operate at only 40% visitor capacity to begin with, will help all cultural sites to follow the requirements that will support the visitor experience across the cultural site spaces, including social distancing rules, crowd control measures and regulations for employees and visitors in order to reopen safely.

Before reopening to guests, all sites are required to conduct comprehensive risk assessments regarding ensuring the health and safety of everyone visiting the site, with a site-specific compliance monitoring procedure also put in place. Once complete, the reopened sites will then have to ensure that visitors and employees respect the social distancing rule of 2 metres with a range of measures.

Each site will also have thermal cameras installed at the entrance, to ensure each person is going through the mandated thermal screening, including staff and visitors, with the safety of the community and public at the core of DCT Abu Dhabi’s plans for site re-openings.
