Around the UAE, government entities and private companies have increasingly activated plans for remote work in a bid to combat the spread of the coronavirus.
Earlier in March, the UAE announced that it was activating its remote work system for federal employees for an extendable two week period from Sunday, March 15.
Similar initiatives have been launched for government employees across the country, including both Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
Numerous private companies have also sent their employees to work from home.
Dubai’s Emaar, for example, announced on Saturday that all employees would be working from home from Monday, March 23.
