The Ras Al Khaimah Public Services Department has announced the reopening of public beaches in the Emirate from Thursday, May 28, after a series of measures including deep sterilization and cleaning was conducted to ensure the public’s health and safety.
The move is part of the Department’s efforts to reopen public facilities after implementing preventive measures to limit the spread of coronavirus (Covid-19) and safeguard public health.
The reopening is subject to several conditions. Children under the age of 12 as well as those over 60 are not allowed, while beaches must not exceed 30% capacity.
Beach goers must also wear face masks and gloves; gatherings of more than 5 individuals – even if they are from the same family – are not allowed; and people must adhere to physical distancing of at least 2 meters. When practicing sports, people must leave a distance of no less than 1.82 meters between each other. Smoking, campfires and barbecues are also prohibited.
Department inspectors will monitor all public beaches and anyone found in breach of the rules will face fines.
