Notices To Be Placed On Homes Under Quarantine In Abu Dhabi


Authorities in Abu Dhabi have confirmed that notices will be placed at home entrances of people in self-quarantine. 

The signs will explain that an individual inside the residential unit is following a 14-day quarantine period as mandated by the government. 

Abu Dhabi Public Health Centre is undertaking the initiative to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus and to raise community awareness on the importance of social distancing. 

A tweet released by the Abu Dhabi Government Media Office said: "In order to protect public health, maintain adherence to precautionary measures, and encourage social responsibility, notices are to be placed at the entrances of all residential units where people are quarantining.”

The announcement came as authorities in Abu Dhabi issued new regulations for international travellers arriving in the capital. 

According to the new rules, all international travellers arriving in the capital and intending to stay in the emirate, will be fitted with an electronic wristband until the completion of a mandatory 14-day quarantine period. 

The free, medically-approved tag will be distributed to passengers arriving from all countries at any Abu Dhabi entry point. 

Those who plan on staying in Abu Dhabi for a few days will still be fitted with the electronic wristband which will only be removed once they've completed the 14-day quarantine period. 

Authorities have advised passengers to plan their trips accordingly.
