The UAE shut beaches, parks, pools, cinemas and gyms starting Sunday for two weeks.

Restaurants and cafes will be allowed to operate for the same period at 20% of capacity, and as long as customers are at least two metres apart. Meanwhile, delivery services are subject to review, the Supreme Council for National Security announced.
