The decision comes as a result of the national disinfection programme of the Ministry of Health and Prevention and the Ministry of Interior being carried out at the moment in the emirates.
It also supports the government’s remote work initiative and its directives to citizens and residents to stay home. The move comes after Abu Dhabi announced free parking on March 29 for three weeks.
The UAE on Monday announced 41 new cases of COVID-19, raising the total number of confirmed cases in the country to 611.
