UAE Eid al-Adha 2021 COVID-19 Protocols

On the occasion of the blessed Eid Al-Adha and the standing of Arafa, all UAE ministries and federal entities will have a holiday starting from the 9th of Dhu Al-Hijjah, corresponding to Monday, July 19, 2021, until the 12th of Dhu Al-Hijjah 1442 AH corresponding to Thursday, July 22, 2021 AD, provided that official working hours will resume on Sunday, corresponding to July 25, 2021.

However, we're still fighting COVID-19 so the country issued preventive protocols to protect the residents. 

Here are the Eid Al Adha safety protocols

Eid Al Adha gatherings must be limited to family members living in the same house and first-degree relatives.

Authorities have also advised people to get tested for COVID-19 before visiting relatives, especially the elderly and those with chronic diseases.

They have once again called on everyone to convey Eid greetings through phone calls and online platforms and to avoid distributing gifts or food during the festive period.

Eid Al Adha prayers will be held in mosques and musallahs with a duration of no more than 15 minutes.
