Only individuals with chronic illnesses will be exempt from the latest announcement given they provide a medical report approved by the competent authorities, the government said.

Employees must adhere to all preventative measures at all ties, including maintain social distancing and wearing a mask, the government added.

The UAE last week announced the completion of the nationwide sterilization program and the lifting of the nightime curfew.

However, the ban on entering the capital Abu Dhabi is still in place, but residents in the city can move within the emirate’s borders.
