Dubai students returning from abroad must study online for ten days - instead of 14 days as stipulated previously — if they don’t have a negative test result for COVID-19, under updated rules announced on Wednesday.
The Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) said on its website that all Dubai school and university students and staff who have returned to the UAE must show a negative PCR test result with 48-hour validity before re-joining their campuses.
The PCR test may be done at a Dubai airport or any approved Dubai Health Authority (DHA) facility within the emirate, the KHDA added.
Students who don’t have a negative PCR test result will have to study or work remotely for ten days from their arrival date.
“Students who would like to resume onsite learning without completing their ten-day quarantine, should produce a negative PCR test,” the KHDA said.
