Dubai's Permanent Committee of Labour Affairs (PCLA) has conducted awareness campaigns for workers, drivers, and supervisors across 500 companies, as part of its efforts to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

The committee has also distributed COVID-19 awareness guides and pamphlets published in various languages, including Arabic, Urdu, Hindi, and English. These guidelines included information on COVID-19 including the transmission and spread of the virus, and precautions that need to be taken to 'flatten the curve', and prevent the further spread of the pandemic.
