Abu Dhabi further extends ban on public movement by one week

Abu Dhabi's Emergency, Crisis, and Disaster committee has announced that the emirate will further extend the ban on public movement by a week and for a third week, effective from 16 June, in light of the precautionary measures to be taken to combat the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak in the emirate.

The extension of the movement ban comes on the sidelines of the further continuation of the National Screening Programme in the emirate, following the testing of more than 3,88,000 persons in Abu Dhabi, Abu Dhabi Media Office tweeted. 

The previously-announced extension was effective from 9 June.

The decision has been announced in collaboration with Abu Dhabi Police and the Department of Health (DoH).

The ban is applicable to all residents including UAE nationals with exemptions available by special permit for employees in vital sectors.

The emirate has permitted residents' movement in each region and within the region - in compliance with the National Sterilisation Programme timings.
