Abu Dhabi COVID-19 Eid Guidelines Announced

Abu Dhabi’s Emergency, Crisis and Disasters Committee announced COVID-19 guidelines during Eid Al Adha celebrations.

The authority recommended avoiding social gatherings, and instead of meeting with friends and family virtually.

The committee also urged those attending public Eid prayers to avoid gathering, shaking hands, or offering greetings in the traditional manner before or after the Eid prayer.

These categories can attend public Eid prayers:

  • Those with chronic illnesses or respiratory symptoms

  • Individuals living with patients undergoing Covid-19 treatment as well as those living with someone in contact with Covid-19 patients.

Eid Sacrifices

  •  Dedicated animal drop-off and collection points

  •  Use of Zabehaty, Zabayeh Al Jazeera and Dhabayeh UAE apps to simplify the process.

  • Sacrificial donations, distributions and payments are to be arranged with charitable organisations within the UAE.

Sacrifices will only be permitted at approved abattoirs that provide drive-through services to customers, the committee said.
