Abu Dhabi: Abu Dhabi police have urged motorists to follow security procedures at police checkpoints in the emirate. Compliance with these regulations will ensure the flow of traffic and avoid traffic jams, he added in an article posted on social media.
The emirate has kept entry restrictions in place since May in an effort to limit the COVID-19 outbreak. Currently, those wishing to enter the emirate must present a negative COVID-19 test result obtained either by PCR test or DPI screening at the border. In addition, those who stay in the emirate for six consecutive days after entering must undergo a PCR test on the sixth day.
According to police, motorists must show their Emirates ID card and negative COVID-19 test results while properly wearing their face masks. In addition, the number of passengers in the car, excluding the driver, cannot exceed three people.
As seen in a video released by the police, there are three designated lanes at checkpoints: Emergency Only, COVID-19 Certified Test, and Truck Lane. Authorities have said in the past that in addition to emergency vehicles, online volunteers for COVID-19 vaccine trials are allowed to go through the emergency route only.
