How are people dealing with this situation?
The news broke Sunday evening (June 2nd) during an announcement from Abu Dhabi Media Office via the Abu Dhabi Emergency and Crisis Committee for the Covid-19 Pandemic, in collaboration with Abu Dhabi Police and the Department of Health.
Movement restrictions were banned between Abu Dhabi itself, Al Ain and Al Dhafra, and no-one from Abu Dhabi has been able to leave, some exemptions were made only by a special permit for certain conditions. Movement within Abu Dhabi is allowed only in line of the national sterilization program.
The emirate will only allow people to enter if they can prove they had COVID19 negative test during 48 hours. Anyone crossing the border, including on Sheikh Zayed Road and Al Ain Road, among others, will be stopped at police checkpoints.
People should consider how long will it take to get an appointment for a test and a result before planning any journeys.
Anyone who needs to be in Abu Dhabi for a meeting or an emergency or commuting from Abu Dhabi to Dubai or Northern Emirates would have to be tested before they return and will need to present a medical certificate, except for children under 12. Domestic workers must also have a valid medical certificate to enter the emirate.
