However, non-Abu Dhabi based workers are still prohibited from entering the city.

Exemptions on the required testing will be made for mail and all types of goods, the media office added.

Entry into the capital city had been prohibited, but residents were allowed to move within the emirate’s borders.

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