Offices can resume normal operating hours from tomorrow, according to a comprehensive and updated list of guidelines issued by Dubai Economy for the reopening of establishments.

Organisations will now be allowed to increase the occupancy ceiling to 50 per cent in common areas and within office premises.
They can also have a workforce capacity of 50 per cent working from the office, as opposed to the previous cap of 30 per cent, according to the document viewed by Khaleej Times.

All elevators must have markings on the floor that indicate appropriate social distances and users must comply by standing on these markings, it added.
