Campus learning will also resume in private and public schools in Abu Dhabi from tomorrow.

The Ministry of Education (MoE) in UAE has urged schools, pupils and parents to adhere to all health and safety measures put in place by the authorities when students return to campuses for physical learning.

Pupils in public schools across the UAE will return to schools in two phases.

The first group of students will return to educational institutions on January 24.

The rest of the students will resume in-person learning from January 31.

In a new circular, Dubai Healthcare Authority (DHA) said that healthcare workers, who were in close contact with Covid-19 patients, will be exempted from mandatory quarantine.

This circular has come into effect since Thursday, January 20. The Department of Health in Abu Dhabi issued a similar mandate for healthcare workers in Abu Dhabi, as well.
