Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Executive Council, said that 50 per cent of all Dubai government employees would resume working from their offices on Sunday, May 31.

The remaining will do so starting from June 14.

Sheikh Hamdan also said that the decision was a result of a directive from Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minster of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, and was made “as we continue our gradual return to normal life with intensified precautionary measures.”

Abdullah Ali bin Zayed Al Falasi, director general of the Dubai Government Human Resources Department, said the decision has exceptions and would allow some employees to continue working remotely from home.

These employees include the elderly, those with underlying health and chronic conditions, people of determination, pregnant women and others with compromised immunity, reported official news agency WAM.

Al Falasi stressed that customers must use digital platforms to obtain government services as much as possible, thereby ensuring both employees and customers are protected.

The department will issue a circular at a later date to all government entities outlining details of the measures related to resumption of full operations at the office.

The Crown Prince stated that all precautionary measures would be strictly implemented and closely monitored to ensure compliance.

He said various vital sectors exempted from the initial restrictions on movement were already following these preventive measures. Other sectors that have resumed operations as part of the gradual reopening of economic activities are also following preventive steps.

The decision, he further stated, is consistent with the Government of Dubai’s measured approach to protecting the health and safety of citizens and residents and reopening the economy.

The government is committed to supporting economic sectors and those impacted by the repercussions of the global crisis, he added.

On May 26, Dubai Economy had said in a circular that offices were allowed to reopen with 50 per cent of their capacity.
