The Emergency, Crisis and Disaster Management Team (ECDMT) in Sharjah on Tuesday announced updated protocols for passengers arriving in the country through Sharjah International Airport.
All passengers arriving in Sharjah must present a negative COVID-19 PCR test report 72 hours prior to departing for Sharjah. Earlier, the PCR test validity was 96 hours, which has been reduced to 72. The decision will take effect 5 days after its issuance, ECDMT confirmed.
The updated protocol stipulates that the test result must be negative. In addition, passengers will be subject to COVID-19 PCR test upon arrival at the ports of the Emirate of Sharjah.
The move is part of the emirate’s keenness to preserve the safety of community members in line with the preventive protocol and measures to curb the spread of the coronavirus.
The updates announced by the ECDMT in Sharjah also mention that passengers of outbound flights must present a negative COVID-19 PCR test 72 hours before departure. Adhering to the preventive measures adopted in the country of destination with a health insurance when travelling abroad is also required, the ECDMT added.
The Sharjah Police stated that non-compliance with wearing masks, and gatherings top the list of reports received through the reporting platforms that have been made available to the public, stressing the need to adhere to precautionary measures, and to report violations and abuses through its channels designated for individuals so that deterrent legal measures are taken against violators.
The health ministry said that 2,171 people recovered from the infection.
The health authorities said, “Strict measures are being considered to restrict the movement of unvaccinated individuals and to implement preventive measures such as restricting entry to some places and having access to some services, to ensure the health and safety of everyone."
