Dubai Municipality has announced the operation of sports courts in Dubai’s public parks starting from January 2.

In a statement issued on social media Saturday morning, DM announced the reopening of sports courts at public parks from today with the required Covid-19 precautionary measures.

Earlier this week, authorities in Dubai announced that fitness centres and sports venues will no longer be required to use thermal scanners or conduct temperature checks starting tomorrow, January 1, 2021.

The Dubai Sports Council (DSC) said the Covid safety measure update covers sports events, all sports clubs, academies, training and fitness centres, and other such facilities in the emirate.

This decision, DSC said, follows the directives issued by government authorities to abolish temperature checks at all business establishments in Dubai. On Wednesday, the Dubai Economy announced that this applies to all stores and outlets.
