“Better and safer to enjoy Eid Al Fitr home,” some other signs read.

While the UAE authorities have warned against gatherings during Eid Al Fitr, the families in Ras Al Khaimah have shown full commitment and stuck ‘No Visit for Eid’ signs on the doors of their houses.

“This does not mean that we cannot celebrate and enjoy the happy feast,” Mohamed Ibrahim, an Emirati national, said.

“It is only a precautionary measure to curb Covid-19 infection and transmission. Still, we can exchange Eid wishes via so many ways including phones, SMS and social media networks.”

Communication is not an issue at all these days, according to Ali Saeed, an Emirati national.

“We can see and talk to each other via several video conference smart apps that are accessible to anyone.”

Sherif Al Wakeel, an Egyptian citizen, said some people turn deaf ears to repetitive warnings and insist on gathering.

“This sign and other decent ways to say ‘We do wish to have you, but we are deeply sorry given the current health challenges’ is the best way to remain safe,” said Adel Ali, a Syrian citizen.

The invitation of a beauty salon staff to home was pointed out as the reason for a mother and her two daughters’ getting Covid-19, according to Aya Hamed, an Iraqi citizen.

“Why would I take the risk?” she asked. “No visits at all is the only way out,” she said, noting that she exchanged Eid wishes with relatives and friends via social media.

Aisha M., an Emirati national, said she could not help sticking that sign on her outdoor.

“The sign reads: ‘Dear guests; we are sorry for not being able to receive well-wishers in Eid Al Fitr for the safety and wellbeing of our family; yet, you can call, and this my phone number.” 

“Better and safer to enjoy Eid Al Fitr home,” some other signs read, according to Mustafa Saleh, an Emirati national. “These visits from families and friends have ended up in more Covod-19 patients through Ramadan.”

Ashraf Kamal, an Egyptian citizen, said everyone should be up to the unprecedented global pandemic. “We should be aware enough of the serious situation and care for each other, mainly these days.”
