SHARJAH 11 February 2021: The Emergency Crisis and Disaster Team in the Emirate of Sharjah has approved several precautionary measures initiated by the Sharjah Police (SP) for its employees and clients to prevent the spread of the coronavirus (Covid-19).

The team approved the mandatory pre-examination of the nasal swab (PCR) for all its clients to enter the main building of the SP or its buildings in the emirate, including all customer happiness centres, starting 11th February, 2021, except those vaccinated in national vaccination programmes, and volunteers in clinical studies of vaccines.

Sharjah Police called on all its clients to complete their transactions through its smart application “Sharjah police” or the “Police Station in Your Phone” available on the MOI UAE application, stressing its keenness to provide smart services to its clients, which contribute to completing their transactions easily without the need for visiting the services centres, said Wam.

‏The decision also limits the number of individuals allowed at family and social gatherings, such as weddings, to a maximum of 10 people, and a maximum of 20 people at funerals.

Restaurants and cafes are also required to maintain a 2-metre distance between tables, where no more than four people are allowed to sit together, unless they belong to the same family.
