UAE is imposing a mandatory 14-day self quarantine for passengers who have traveled from countries which are considered virus hotspots.
This decision was made to ensure that passengers will be free from the virus and avoid contact with other people.
“This is to ensure they remain infection-free and avoid spreading the virus in case they end up developing symptoms during the 14-day incubation period,” Dubai Health Authority told the Khaleej Times.
Following are countries considered to be virus hotspots:
“All travellers who return from countries of concern will be asked to practise home quarantine and social distancing as a way of protecting their loved ones and the community members from the spread of the virus. They should avoid contact with others and should not go to work or school for this 14-day period,” DHA’s statement continued.
