In Dubai, the Disinfection Programme is now 24 hours a day and the pubic cannot leave their homes unless it is for ‘essential purposes’.
In Abu Dhabi, the public is advised to remain at home between 8pm and 6am each day and only leaving their homes unless it is ‘absolutely necessary’ or if you work in vital sectors.
During the day public transport runs as normal, though everyone is still advised to stay at home.
