PCR -Test , Mandated

The National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority (NCEMA) released a protocol for in-person learning in UAE schools and colleges on Thursday; mandating unvaccinated students in the age group of 12-18 years must get a negative RT-PCR test result every week to attend in-person classes. Children aged 4-12 years must get a PCR or saliva test monthly, whether vaccinated or not. Furthermore, remote education is an option for them. Parents should download the Alhosn app for their children to prove their vaccination status and test results, via printing out certificates and bringing them to school.
