Dubai government offices to have 100% staffing from June 14

 

DUBAI – Dubai government offices will have 100 percent staffing starting on June 14 as the emirate eases into normal business amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohamed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Dubai Crown Prince and chairman of the Executive Council, announced the decision on Wednesday (May 27).

Sheikh Hamdan made the statement as Dubai reopened businesses, including cinemas and entertainment centres on Wednesday.

Sheikh Hamdan also said that 50 percent of Dubai government employees can resume work in offices starting on May 31.

“Under the directives of @HHShkMohd, today we approved a decision that allows 50% of Dubai government employees to resume work at offices from Sunday, May 31, and 100% from June 14, 2020 as we continue our gradual return to normal life with intensified precautionary measures,” Sheikh Hamdan said.

The Dubai Crown Prince said that the Dubai government has “proven its full capability to work remotely” and that its precautionary measures paid off earlier than expected.

“None of the vital services were affected despite the precautionary measures and movement restrictions imposed,” he said.

“Our investments in the future paid off sooner than expected. It is reassuring to know we’re heading in the right direction. Now, we’re encouraged to redouble efforts, to accelerate our digital transformation for Dubai to become a model smart city, forever exceeding expectations,” Sheikh Hamdan said. ICA/Expat Media
