Residents of the UAE awoke on Monday to a world in which almost all Covid safety regulations had been lifted. Almost three years after the pandemic disturbed daily life, things are finally back to how they were.
The National Emergency Crisis and Disasters Management Authority (NCEMA) addressed the public via a virtual briefing on Sunday and further relaxed the mask and Covid testing requirements for locals and visitors. All public and private spaces, including mosques and houses of worship, no longer need mask wear.

✔️In health facilities and centers for persons with determination, masks are still required.
✔️For people with Covid-19 infection, the five-day isolation period will still be in effect.
✔️Depending on the nature or relevance of the activity, sports event and activity organizers may ask for Covid tests or immunization records.
The NCEMA released the following announcements last night, in full:
