Coronavirus: all public beaches in Sharjah can now reopen
Authorities called on beach-goers to abide by Covid-19 safety measures
All public beaches in Sharjah are to be allowed to reopen with immediate effect, authorities confirmed on Monday.
The emirate's National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Team said beach-goers must abide by Covid-19 safety measures, including wearing face masks and adopting physical distancing practices.
Officials reiterated that members of the public are not required to wear masks when swimming in waters while at the beach.
The reopening of public beaches is part of a gradual lifting of restrictions in Sharjah.
On June 24, it was announced that private beaches, cinemas, auction houses, valet services, gyms for men and women, restaurants, swimming pools, play areas and museums would reopen at a 50 per cent capacity.
All government staff in Sharjah were permitted to return to their workplaces on Sunday, July 19.
