Any buildings where people are quarantining in Abu Dhabi must display a notice warning the public, Abu Dhabi Public Health Center (ADPHC) said on Friday.
Abu Dhabi has brought in new regulations to limit the spread of coronavirus through international travel, with all international travelers required to adhere to a 14-day quarantine on arrival.
In the latest announcement on Twitter, ADPHC clarified that all residential units hosting people in quarantine must display a sign at the entrance to protect the public and prevent infection.
"We are committed to adhering to all self-quarantine measures to defeat Covid-19," says the sign, as shown in a video shared by ADPHC on Twitter. The video shows the signs being placed on the wall and floor next to a door.

According to ADPHC, home delivery services will leave packages at the door to avoid coming into contact with the quarantined resident.
International travelers will be monitored through electronic quarantine wristbands that share their location with authorities. They must remain quarantined until they are called for a PCR nasal swab test after 12 days.
If they test negative, an ADPHC representative will contact them to have the wristband removed.
The UAE has experienced a resurgence of the coronavirus this month, with the highest daily increase in cases in a day reported last week.
