Precautionary measures to be followed by all bus riders:
Shakri reminded all bus riders must comply with preventive measures, “such as physical distancing and wearing of masks to curb the spread of COVID-19 for the public health of the UAE community”.
He added: “Riders have to comply with the precautionary measures enforced by the emirate of Abu Dhabi, which state that individuals allowed to enter Abu Dhabi emirate are vaccinated individuals whose status is shown as green on Al Hosn App and designated by letter E or star. Unvaccinated individuals will be allowed to enter Abu Dhabi within 48 hours of receiving the COVID-19 test result. Riders heading to Abu Dhabi must not use DPI [Diffractive Phase Interferometry] test results to enter the emirate two successive times. Such requirements must be reflected on Al Hosn App and in compliance with any new precautionary measures that might be introduced by the concerned bodies in the emirate.”
