Officials said people should stay home and support the government's fight against the pandemic.

Abu Dhabi residents have been advised to stay home during the hours specified for the sterilisation programme.

"However, urgent and critical access to pharmacies, supermarkets and similar retail is allowed during these hours, without the prerequisite of a permit," Abu Dhabi Media Office said in a tweet.

Abu Dhabi authorities on Monday announced that the sterilisation programme in the Capital will be from 8pm to 6am in residential areas and 6pm to 6am in industrial zones and workers accommodations.

Officials said people should stay home and support the government's fight against the pandemic.

A person caught leaving home for unnecessarily during the restricted period except for emergency or vital work or for buying necessities faces a fine of Dh2,000.
