National Sterilization Programme timing daily from 12 midnight until 5.00 am
Before you plan on cruising to Abu Dhabi, Abu Dhabi Police have reminded all motorists of the National Sterilisation Programme as a safety measure against the spread of Covid-19 virus.
Motorists driving to Abu Dhabi, Al Ain and Al Dhafra region from other Emirates have to factor in the ongoing movement restrictions in place past midnight, 12 AM to 5 AM.
During these five hours, the movement of traffic and residents is restricted, and transportation services, suspended. Residents who need to leave their homes for essential reasons or to buy food or medicine during these hours would need to procure a movement permit which can be applied for, on the Abu Dhabi Police website.
The Abu Dhabi Police had earlier said that radars in Abu Dhabi have been activated to detect residents who step out of their homes during the restricted hours. The sterilisation scheme is part of sweeping Covid-19 safety measures that went into effect last week.
Additionally, new testing and entry rules; and reduced capacity restrictions at malls, cinemas and other public places continue to be in force.
