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.
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.
