Movement of workers remains restricted within Abu Dhabi’s regions of Abu Dhabi, Al Ain and Al Dhafra, the Abu Dhabi Emergency, Crisis and Disaster Committee for the Covid-19 Pandemic said.

“Precautionary health measures will apply upon entry. Movement between Abu Dhabi’s regions (Abu Dhabi, Al Ain and Al Dhafra) is also allowed using the permit system,” the message on Twitter stated.

Movement within each region is allowed in line with the UAE’s national sterilisation programme, which is underway from 10pm until 6am.

Abu Dhabi initially announced the movement ban for a period of one week starting June 2, and it was subsequently renewed for another week starting June 9.

The third extension was announced on Tuesday.

Exemptions to the movement ban are available to employees in vital sectors, emergency medical cases, and those facilitating the movement of goods and mail.
