Dubai's Supreme Committee of Crisis and Disaster Management has announced a set of safety and precautionary measures for New Year's Eve.

No more than 30 people are allowed for a private or social gathering. All gatherings should observe physical distancing norms and adhere to the rule of one person per four square metres of venue space.

Attendees are required to wear face masks at all times, while elderly people and those with chronic conditions are advised not to attend these gatherings.

Individuals experiencing symptoms such as cough or fever must avoid attending such events.

If a private or social gathering is found to be in violation of any of the guidelines outlined, then a fine of AED 50,000 will be issued to the host and a fine of AED 15,000 to each person attending.

Inspections will be conducted to make sure the rules and regulations are being followed, which are in place for the health and safety of the community.
