UAE gov’t reveals workers who need Covid-19 test every after seven days


- Advertisment -

Authorities in the UAE have recently revealed and identified workers who need to take the Covid-19 test every after few days. 

On Monday, the Federal Authority for Government Human Resource announced on Twitter that only those that have received both doses of the vaccine against the Covid-19 are exempted from the rule. 

The announcement means that all unvaccinated ministry and federal government employees are required to undergo a PCR test for Covid-19 every after seven days at their own expense starting on Sunday, January 24. In an event that an employee is not eligible to take the vaccine, the employer must shoulder the cost of the test every after seven days. 

Meanwhile, those outsourced and public services companies who are working with the federal government are also mandated to conduct a PCR test every after seven days for their employees. This covers those who work on a full-time basis at government offices. 

For consultant and experts who attend meetings at government offices, they are also required to present a negative PCR test. The test must be taken within three days of the meeting. 

The Abu Dhabi Health Services Company (SEHA) has earlier announced that a negative PCR test is required for inpatient visits in Abu Dhabi hospitals. The results, however, should have been issued within 24 hours of the visit. 

The Global Filipino Magazine is the only Filipino magazine in the UAE that prints on a monthly basis. Its goal is to champion the success of every global Filipino across the globe.
