Covid in UAE: Dubai announces new mask rules; travel, quarantine protocols
Emirates: The Supreme Committee of Crisis and Disaster Management
in Dubai on Friday announced that close contacts of Covid-19 positive cases who
are not experiencing any symptoms are no longer required to quarantine.
In line with the NCEMAUAE’s announcements, Dubai’s Supreme Committee of Crisis
and Disaster Management said easing of Covid-19 precautionary measures in the
emirate will start from Saturday.
“Wearing of masks continues to be mandatory in all public indoor venues in
Dubai, while it is optional in outdoor areas. Among updated travel protocols,
Dubai-bound travellers will need to present an approved Covid-19 vaccination
certificate that contains a QR code.
“Unvaccinated inbound travellers need to present a negative PCR test result done
within the last 48 hours or a certificate of recovery from Covid-19 containing a
QR code, obtained within one month before the date of travel,” Dubai Media
Office said in a series of tweets.
