Dubai Healthcare Authority (DHA) said in a circular that healthcare workers, who were in close contact with Covid-19 patients, have been exempted from mandatory quarantine.

The decision has been made in line with the directives from the Covid-19 Command and Control Centre in Dubai.

This circular has come into effect since Thursday, January 20. The Department of Health in Abu Dhabi issued a similar mandate for healthcare workers in Abu Dhabi, as well.

Healthcare employees can avoid quarantine if: Contact healthcare workers are free of symptoms; the primary series of vaccination and the booster dose have been taken; the primary series of vaccinations have been completed and they had earlier been infected with Covid-19.

Alternatively, healthcare workers should’ve taken the primary series of vaccinations, provided they are not exceeding the limited period for booster since the second dose.
