A number of other Aldar Properties malls are also on standby to reopen in the coming days including World Trade Center Abu Dhabi, Shams Boutik and Remal Mall, but exact opening dates have not been announced.
Last week a series of guidelines were issued to malls and shopping destinations in the city outlining the necessary safety requirements to prepare for reopening to the public.
Malls in Abu Dhabi can reopen once they meet some stringent health and safety guidelines. Once open they will be inspected regularly.
Among the new regulations for the reopening of malls include, a maximum capacity of 30 percent, the installation of thermal inspection devices, separate entrances and exits and more.
In addition, all shoppers are only permitted to visit for a maximum of two hours, must abide by social distancing rules, wear protective masks and are advised to use contactless payment where possible and bring reusable bags.
All mall staff are also required to be tested for COVID-19 and must wear masks and gloves at all times.
