Details on Al Hosn App Reduced Green Pass Validity

UAE announced an update to the green pass system on the Al Hosn app, reducing its validity period from 30 days to 14 days to all categories from Wednesday, 15th June, 2022, except for workers in the education sector and students, for whom the decision will be applied on Monday, 20 June, 2022, due to the examination period.

"The national system, since the start of the crisis, has been able to monitor the pandemic both locally and globally, and many COVID-19 cases were detected around the world," Al Ameri said, noting that recently, an increase in COVID-19 infections around the country has been detected, along with rising hospitalisation rates, and the number of cases increased by over 100 percent in one week.

Wearing masks in closed areas is mandatory and violators will be punished with a fine of up to AED3,000, according to Public Prosecution Decision No.38 for 2020.

"A lack of commitment to isolating was noted among a small group of people infected with COVID-19, which threatens the safety of the community and causes the spread of the virus, due to the lack of commitment of people," Al Ameri stated, noting that such practices will be subject to legal action.

"Our frontline defenders in the UAE have been working nonstop for two years, and due to their efforts, the country has contained the pandemic and achieved recovery," he stressed, noting that complying with the precautionary measures, as well as failing to meet the social role of maintaining public health and acquired immunity, has resulted in a rise in infections and new waves of the virus.
