More than 56,000 tests have been carried out so far across Abu Dhabi.

Amer Al Hammadi, ADEK undersecretary, explains the schools reopening guidelines and policies in Abu Dhabi, in addition to the compliance programme, which will provide a safe and secure environment for all students, and ensure access to quality education.

In a separate development, mothers with children in grade six and below or those with children of determination are permitted to work remotely from home so that they can monitor and take care of their kids during the e-learning classes, the Federal Authority for Government and Human Resources (FAHR) announced.

The decision has been issued based on the UAE Cabinet Resolution No. 27 of 2020 to ensure balance between meeting business requirements and helping families fulfil the requirements of distance education for their children due to the COVID-19 pandemic in a way that supports the education drive in line with the directives of the UAE leadership.
