The council of Khaldiya suburb will be open for a week, from 26th to 30th of July from 10:00 am until 3:00 pm.”
He stressed that the pre-booking for the testing is must by sending a copy of the ID card to the number assigned to each council via WhatsApp. Number of the councils will be announced through the councils’ accounts on social media, he added.
All Sharjah residents who have a residence visa issued in the Emirate are now allowed to return through the ports of Sharjah without the need to obtain prior approvals.
The Ministry stressed in a statement on Saturday that, its aim to continue expanding the scope of testing nationwide to facilitate the early detection of coronavirus cases and carry out the necessary treatment.

Two of those killed were on the train and one was in the truck, Missouri State Highway Patrol spokesman Cpl. Justin Dunn said. Officials were still trying to determine the exact number of people aboard. Seven cars derailed, the patrol said.
The leaders vowed that Russian President Vladimir Putin and those responsible would be held to account for Monday's strike in the city of Kremenchuk, carried out during the shopping mall's busiest hours.
The attacks shattered apartment buildings, video footage showed. The blast gouged a vast crater in front of the school, with debris strewn about classrooms, their windows all blown out.
