The Ministry of Education and the Umm Al Quwain emergency, crisis and disaster management team announced schools in Umm Al Quwain will switch to 100 per cent online learning ‘until further notice’.
The Ministry announced on Sunday, February 14.
Umm Al Quwain has become the third emirate to switch to 100 per cent e-learning as a precautionary measure against the spread of Covid-19.
Ajman had announced the switch to online learning on February 9, followed by Sharjah on February 11.
The move came in response to the strategic requirements pursued by the UAE to ensure the health and safety of UAE citizens and residents in general, and our students, and the school community in particular.
The Ministry is keen to implement the precautionary and preventive measures approved by the emergency and crisis management teams that adopt approved national policies, protocols and measures to safeguard the community.
Abu Dhabi schools welcomed back students to campus on Sunday after months of e-learning.
The ministry also announced that 35 cases fully recovered from the virus, after receiving treatment, bringing the total recovered cases to 96.
DoH urged the public to rely only on official sources when dealing with all news related to the novel virus.
The Department on Thursday issued an administrative decision regarding the temporary ban of serving “shisha”, calling on owners of establishments operating in the emirate to immediately stop this service until further notice.
There were no immediate reports of casualties from the strikes and no claim of responsibility, two police officers said. A number of Shi'ite Muslim militant groups have offices and supporters in eastern Baghdad.
Both had pleaded not guilty to charges of violating the official secrets act, which carries a maximum sentence of 14 years. "Three years each, no hard labour," said the source, who declined to be identified due to the sensitivity of the issue.
