During this time, as you all know we are facing one of the worst health crises, which we have never experienced in our times. Coronavirus has claimed many lives across the globe until now and spreading very quickly. The only way to “flatten the curve” and keep ourselves safe from this virus is to follow social distancing, stay indoors and avoid public contact. So, UAE, stay home and stay safe.
UAE government is taking all the necessary measures to contain the spread of Covid-19.
Irrespective of the fact whether we are an Emirati or an expat, it is the duty of every individual staying in UAE to support our government in combating this pandemic. United we stand and we will sail through it.
UAE government has taken several steps in order to protect us and keep us all safe. Some of these steps include stringent measures to keep the spread of the virus to the bare minimum.
As you all know that people are not allowed to leave their homes, except for essential purposes or if they are working in vital sectors. Only one family member at a time is permitted to leave the house.
The government of UAE has imposed several fines for individuals or organizations that fail to oblige to the precautionary measures dictated by the officials. All the leading newspapers have shared the list of fines. You can also find them on our social media pages (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn) shared by our team. The fine amount is hefty, so it’s our genuine advice to not go out until you have a valid reason, or you work in essential services.
Even if you are going outside there are certain precautions that you need to take care, to avoid legal implications.
1: Always cover yourself with mask and gloves.
2: Never forget to carry your Emirates id with you.
You may be asked to show the proof of your visit at any time by the authorities. So, you need to keep your bills, prescriptions, etc. filed safely.
It is both ethical and legal responsibility of ours to follow procedures and avoid any kind of legal accountability.
