COVID-19: Abu Dhabi issues updated home quarantine rules

The guidelines have been updated to protect health and safety of community members against COVID-19

Abu Dhabi Emergency, Crisis and Disasters Committee has updated home quarantine guidelines for those individuals who have come in contact with a COVID-19 infected case. The committee has updated the home quarantine guidelines in collaboration with the Abu Dhabi Public Health Centre with the aim of protecting the health and safety of all members of the community and curb the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.

As per the updated protocols, vaccinated people must quarantine themselves for seven days and then take a PCR test on day 6. Once the PCR test result comes negative, they can remove the wristband on day 7 of their home quarantine.

On the other hand, unvaccinated individuals are required to undergo quarantine for 12 days. They are required to take a PCR test on day 11 of their quarantine. If their PCR test shows a negative result, the wristband can be removed on the final day (day 12) of quarantine.

The authorities have also noted that individuals who came in contact with a positive case and are registered under the home quarantine programme can carry out a free walk-in PCR test as well as get their wristband removed at COVID-19 Prime Assessment Centres at Zayed Port, Mafraq Hospital, ADNEC (Abu Dhabi City), Al Ain Convention Centre, Al Khubiaisi, and Madinat Zayed in Al Dhafra. They can also visit any SEHA hospitals in Al Dhafra to avail the facilities.
