Emaar adopts work from home policy
Emaar Group on Sunday announced it has adopted a work-from-home policy for its employees effective today, as part of preventive measures being undertaken in the UAE to safeguard the community's health.
During this period, Emaar Group will continue to monitor global developments and prevention measures, and update its actions based on how the worldwide situation evolves.
Mohammed Alabbar, chairman of Emaar Properties, said Emaar places the highest priority on the health and safety of its employees, their families, its customers and the broader community.
"The world is facing one of the biggest challenges in its modern history," said Alabbar. "The UAE has set an example for precautionary and preventive measures against Covid-19. Collective efforts are vital to tide over this critical period."

Meanwhile, Emaar Properties will not be taking bookings at three Dubai hotels for 10 weeks from Sunday, according to its hotel booking website.
The Address Dubai Mall, Address Sky View and Palace Downtown cannot be booked from March 22 to May 31, the website shows.
