Precautionary quarantine rules in the UAE

Quarantine in times of COVID-19
The UAE Government advises quarantining to those who may have been in contact with someone infected with COVID-19.

Quarantined people must download the ALHOSN app. They must monitor their health, follow the directions from the health authorities and contact a doctor if they show symptoms.

Quarantining for those arriving into the UAE
you are required to undergo a 14-day quarantine only if you test positive at the airport on arrival. Passengers are already required to take a COVID-19 RT-PCR (Reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction) test 48 to 72 hours before flying to the UAE.

"If passengers opt to take the PCR test on arrival in Dubai, they must self-isolate until test results are received. If the test result is negative, passengers can leave the hotel and enjoy the trip as normal. However, if the test result is positive, passengers are asked to follow the advice of the Dubai Health Authority and self-isolate," 

Dh50,000 fine
According to Resolution No.38 of 2020 Violating home quarantine procedures would make a person liable to a fine of Dh50,000 as it would expose the lives of others to danger.

How to quarantine at home
The UAE’s health authorities issued a joint advisory to people coming in to the UAE on how they can observe home quarantine. The steps include:

• Separate yourself from others at home

• Do not invite visitors or allow them to enter your house during this period

• Remain in your home, do not go to work, school, or public areas

• Do not use public transport or taxis.

• If you share any facility at home, please make sure you disinfect it thoroughly after every use with warm water and detergent then dry your items with a separate towel that only you would use

• It is advised when shopping or ordering online that you avoid direct contact with the delivery man and to ask that items are left outside, or in the porch, or as appropriate for your home.

• Wash your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds at least then dry them well

What is the difference between isolation and quarantine?
Isolation is separation of ill persons who have a communicable disease from those who are healthy, so they can start the treatment journey without infecting others.

Quarantine, on the other hand, is restriction of movement of those who may have been exposed to a communicable disease, but do not have a confirmed medical diagnosis to ensure they are not infected.
