Ahmad Al Falasi, CEO, Corporate Services and Investment, Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (Dubai Tourism), outlined the new set of precautionary measures against COVID-19 that kicked in on February 2. The measures, announced by Dubai’s Supreme Committee of Crisis and Disaster Management, will be effective till February 28.
The introduction of this new set of precautionary measures in Dubai was prompted by a spate of recent violations, necessitating a preventative approach for hotels with high occupancy to avoid their recurrence, Al Falasi said.
“All hotel establishments shall operate at 70 per cent occupancy level. For existing hotels operating at occupancy level above 70 per cent, no new bookings or extensions shall be made until the hotels adhere to the aforementioned limit in addition to postponement of any activity that leads to large gatherings such as weekend brunches,” he added.
The official warned that failure to comply with precautionary measures will result in serious action against the venue. “The safety and wellbeing of all is our utmost priority and we look forward to the continued support of hotels in Dubai in ensuring compliance with all precautionary measures,” he added.
