New Covid-19 measures which came into effect on the first day of Eid Al Adha in Abu Dhabi have encouraged many residents to avoid gatherings, opting instead for more intimate family celebrations.

The new rules issued by the Abu Dhabi Emergency Crisis and Disasters Committee started on July 19; they resulted in restricted movements, updated entry rules into the emirate, and reduced capacity at malls, cinemas, and other public spaces.

Meanwhile, the Liwa Date Festival concluded on Sunday in compliance with all precautionary measures owing to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Visitors were barred entry and only date farmers and participants in the competition were allowed to take part. The participants had to present a Covid-19 vaccination certificate and a negative PCR test report as the eligibility norm for the competitions.

On the international front, Australia's Victoria on Monday reported low numbers of new Covid-19 cases, raising hopes of an end to a lockdown in the state as planned, while neighbouring New South Wales looks set to extend its strict stay-home orders.
