Authorities in the UAE announced that unvaccinated students above 12 years old must take a PCR test every week for in-person learning. 

Meanwhile, vaccinated students aged 12 and above and unvaccinated ones under 12 have to undergo a PCR test every month. 

According to local reports, this new rule will be implemented after a grace period of 30 days from the first academic day. 

During the 30-day grace period, all vaccinated and unvaccinated students will be required to take a PCR test every two weeks. 

Parents will need to show proof that their kids are vaccinated against Covid-19 through the Alhosn app. A printed copy of the negative Covid-19 result and vaccination certificates need to be presented at schools. 

Dr. Farida Al Hosani, official spokesperson of the UAE healthcare sector said that distance learning will still be an option for vaccinated and unvaccinated students. 

“The protocol will be updated based on the situation in the country. Health authorities are working on adding more age groups to those that require to be vaccinated,” she added.
