The Abu Dhabi Emergency, Crisis and Disasters Committee announced that residents and UAE nationals coming to Abu Dhabi who have been vaccinated will not be required to wear wristbands or quarantine for 14 days.
Those who have been given a jab as part of the phase III trials of what is being referred to as the National Vaccination Programme will be freed from the latest requirements on entry to Abu Dhabi.
Also, those vaccinated in either the III trial phase or the Vaccination Program, will no longer need a PCR or DPI test to enter Abu Dhabi. For those vaccinated in the trial phase, the new measures are applicable after the first dose, while the National Vaccination Programme participants will be applicable 28 days after the second dose.
It is noted that residents and citizens coming back from overseas will still need to undergo PCR tests on arrival. People who have done immunization as part of the National Vaccination Programme will have to take further tests on the 4th and 8th day after arrival from overseas.
Novel Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2, also known as COVID-19) is a new strain of coronavirus which is causing illness in humans and animals. Most people infected with the COVID-19 coronavirus will feel mild to moderate respiratory illness and recover without any special treatment. Older people, as well as those with underlying medical problems like cardiovascular disease, chronic respiratory disease, cancer or diabetes, are more likely to develop serious illness, and require immediate assistance. Novel Coronavirus was first identified in a cluster with pneumonia symptoms in Wuhan city, Hubei province of China, quickly spreading around the world. On early March 2020, the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic had officially started, becoming the defining global health crisis of our time. Today, it is the greatest challenge people have faced since World War II, worsened by subsequent lockdowns of whole countries, collapse of entire industries, and a major economic recession.
