Regular Covid-19 test mandatory for employees in Abu Dhabi tourism sector


ABU DHABI – Tourism sector employees in Abu Dhabi are required to undergo regular Covid-19 testing following a mandate by the Abu Dhabi Government.

“The regular testing of staff provides another layer of safety for the community, helping to uplift the confidence of consumers and further activate the tourism sector in the capital,” said Ali Hassan Al Shaiba, Executive Director of Tourism and Marketing at Department of Culture and Tourism-Abu Dhabi (DCT Abu Dhabi).

DCT Abu Dhabi inspectors have been deployed to check 165 hotels and 450 restaurants by conducting over 700 inspections over a period of one month.

DCT Abu Dhabi has also developed a checklist of 107 checkpoints abiding by more advanced criteria in alignment with Department of Health guidance.

According to DCT Abu Dhabi, the effort is part of Abu Dhabi’s extensive and ongoing efforts to ensure the health and safety of its residents and visitors.

The UAE capital recently launched the Rediscover Abu Dhabi campaign aimed at engaging with the myriad staycation and touristic offers made available to visitors.

Across the emirate, social distancing is being enforced and checkpoints have been set up for temperature screenings. Tourism establishments also undergo regular disinfection. ICA/Expat Media
