Sharjah Suspends All Events Until May 2020

The Sharjah Executive Council announced that all sports and social events will be suspended until May end. The extension was announced following the directives of Sheikh Sultan Bin Mohammed bin Sultan Al Qasimi, Crown Prince and Deputy Ruler of Sharjah and Chairman of Sharjah Executive Council. The new rule comes as a precautionary measure to curb the spread of Covid-19.

Meanwhile, salons, restaurants, and malls are open to the public. All centers will be open from 12 pm to 9 pm with the exception of pharmacies and food stores, which will be open round the clock. In addition, several safety measures are put in place as a precautionary measure. These measures are not limited to the working staff, but also apply to residents visiting the respective centers.
