Coronavirus: Dubai Launches Website for Permits To Leave Home

Residents of Dubai can apply via a new website for permits that would allow them to move outdoors for essential work or necessary purposes during the nationwide nighttime disinfection campaign over the weekend.

Dubai Media Office said the website will allow for residents of the Emirate to apply for permits for those needing to head outdoors for “essential purposes” during the three days of the campaign which starts at 8 pm every night and lasts until 6 am the next morning.

During the weekend’s campaign, public transport will be suspended overnight and movement would be restricted.

Dubai authorities announced on Wednesday that all businesses will have to implement remote working for 80 percent of their employees until April 9 at least. Pharmacies, cooperative societies, grocery stores, and supermarkets are exempt from the ruling.
