Public sector employees in Dubai and public schools in the UAE will continue to work remotely on Tuesday (February 13) amid unstable weather conditions.
Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Executive Council of Dubai, issued a directive extending remote work day for Dubai Government entities.
The directive applies to all government employees in Dubai, except for employees with roles that need on-site presence at the workplace.
The UAE Media Office also announced that government schools would continue to operate remote learning classes for the safety of students and faculty.
On Monday, government employees across the UAE worked from home as heavy rain, accompanied by thunder and lightning, pummeled Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Sharjah, Ras Al Khaimah and Fujairah. In Al Ain, residents reported a hailstorm that damaged their properties, including vehicles and windows of their homes.
The National Centre of Meteorology has forecast that rain will continue until Tuesday. ICA/Expat Media
