The largest major global event to be held since the start of the pandemic, Expo 2020 Dubai on Monday said it has ramped up Covid-19 precautionary measures to safeguard the health and safety of visitors.
Owing to rising cases, the mega event has expanded the number of on-site PCR testing facilities to four, and is now providing free testing for all country pavilion staff.
“While all frontline workers and entertainers continue to be tested on a regular basis, some close contact events, such as parades and roving entertainers, have been temporarily suspended as a short-term precautionary measure,” read a press release.
