Coronavirus: UAE residents who travel abroad may face preventive measures when they return
They may have to be kept in isolation if the competent authorities decide so.
The Ministry of Health and Prevention (MoHAP) has urged citizens and residents to avoid traveling abroad due to the spread of COVID-19 in multiple countries.
A statement issued by MoHAP today said that those who travel may face preventative measures upon their return to the UAE - at the discretion of competent authorities - including undergoing medical checks at the airport, and a 14-day home quarantine.
Those who test positive will be transferred to a designated health facility for treatment and quarantine to ensure their safety and to avoid contact with others, the statement added.
The UAE is prepared to tackle the Covid-19 coronavirus, and has all checks in place to ensure that the disease doesn't spread.
Medical guides have been distributed to all health facilities in the public and private sector, as well as land, air and sea ports. Rapid laboratory testing and control procedures have been activated at border crossings, where more than 30,000 tests have been conducted since the virus appeared.
The Ministry of Education has announced a four-week spring break, as well as ensured that students are up to date thanks to e-learning systems that have been put in place.
It also indicated that students and workers at educational facilities who arrive after travelling overseas will undergo necessary medical exam and quarantined for a period of 14 days if found necessary, to ensure that they are free of the disease.
