The Abu Dhabi Emergency, Crisis and Disasters Committee and Department of Health have approved screening protocols in Abu Dhabi for those vaccinated against Covid-19.

Effective January 17, the measures are for participants of the national vaccination programmes and volunteers in clinical trials of Covid-19 vaccines.

Vaccinated residents are identified with special symbols on the Allhosn app.

The active icons on Alhosn app for the volunteers (gold star) and those vaccinated (E) appear after a PCR test is taken after both doses of the vaccine are taken.

The active icons appear on Alhosn app after a PCR test is taken and remain valid for seven days.

Travel procedures

Those arriving from ‘green’ countries, must take a PCR test on arrival and again on day six, without the need to quarantine. Those arriving from other countries, must take a PCR test on arrival, quarantine for 10 days and take PCR test on day 8.

Contact with Covid-positive cases

“If in contact with a positive case, they must quarantine for five days & take a PCR test on day 4. If the result is negative, the quarantine can end,” the Abu Dhabi Government Media Office said.
