As malls begin trading amid the partial ease of restrictions in the UAE, the Ministry of Health and Prevention (MoHaP) and the National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority (NCEMA) have joined forces to add new restrictions in order to ensure their health and safety of senior citizens and children, and announced that those over the age of 60 and younger than 12 are prohibited from entering shopping malls, cooperative societies, and supermarkets. Retail stores shopping centres are also included in this ban.

This follows the announcement on 24 April that a partial reopening of malls, markets and shops was to take place daily from 12pm to 10pm with a maximum of 30 per cent of the total capacity.
