Covid-19 safety measures
In an earlier statement to Khaleej Times, Expo 2020 Dubai had said visitors “are not currently required to provide proof of vaccination to enter the Expo site.”
“However, vaccination is strongly encouraged and vaccinated individuals will still be required to comply with precautionary measures, including wearing of masks, social distancing and regular washing and sanitisation of hands,” it read.
Expo 2020 has implemented a far-reaching programme of precautionary measures to ensure the safety of all visitors, participants and staff, working in close collaboration with the UAE Ministry of Health and Prevention and Dubai Health Authority.
