Over 20,000 Abu Dhabi malls employees tested for Covid-19

The Abu Dhabi Health Services Company (SEHA) has completed approximately 20,000 tests for mall and store employees across the emirate to allow outlets to resume operations.

Earlier this week, the Abu Dhabi Department of Economic Development (ADDED) ordered that owners and managers of commercial centres and shopping malls in Abu Dhabi screen all in-store employees for Covid-19 to be allowed to re-open their businesses in the emirates.

“As the Emirate of Abu Dhabi now prepares for its shopping malls to reopen, the safety and wellbeing of their employees and the community of Abu Dhabi remains our top priority,” said Mohammed Hawas Al Sadid, the CEO of Ambulatory Healthcare Services. “Our network, facilities and professionals are committed to ensure the re-opening of malls is in adherence to the guidelines and precautionary measures established by ADDED.”

The mall and shop employees are being screening at seven SEHA drive-through screening facilities across Abu Dhabi, Al Wathba, Al Bahia, Al Ain and Al Dhafra.
