In line with the ‘Go Safe’ certification programme spearheaded by the Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi, DCT Abu Dhabi, and endorsed by the government of Abu Dhabi, regular COVID-19 testing for all tourism sector staff has been made mandatory.
The effort is part of DCT Abu Dhabi’s extensive and ongoing efforts to ensure the health and safety of its residents and visitors and follows the recent launch of the ‘Rediscover Abu Dhabi’ campaign aimed at engaging with the myriad staycation and touristic offers made available to visitors within the UAE capital.
Abu Dhabi has received international praise for its highly successful efforts in containing the spread of COVID-19, and the emirate continues to achieve positive outcomes as a result of the combined initiatives and regulations that have been introduced to minimise the spread of the virus.
Apart from this, Abu Dhabi Department of Economic Development, ADDED, has issued a new circular directing owners and managers of commercial and industrial facilities in Abu Dhabi to increase their on-site workforce to 60 per cent.
The department has also reminded establishments on the importance of complying with the set of implemented precautionary measures issued by the Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Committee in the emirate to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, COVID-19.
Rashed Abdul Karim Al Balooshi, Under-Secretary of ADDED, explained that the new circular details all the important measures and regulations that need to be followed based on the directives issued by the Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Committee, which took public health and the safety of employees in the private sector companies into consideration.
