Abu Dhabi: Tourists visiting the destination will need to wear tracking wristbands to ensure they are quarantining

The country announced that passengers arriving in Abu Dhabi must now start wearing an electronic wristband to ensure quarantine rules are being strictly followed to prevent further outbreaks. 

Passengers must be tested for COVID-19 within 96 hours of their flight, regardless of their final destination. Upon landing at the airport, travelers will pass thermal sensors and be tested for COVID-19. They will then be required to quarantine for 14 days and must wear the wristband, which officials are handing out at the airport.

Like many other countries, the UAE is seeing a second rise in cases after the numbers dropped in recent months, although the death toll remains much lower than in April and May at the height of the outbreak. On September 12, the UAE recorded its highest daily number of new cases in the entire pandemic.

The country has introduced several innovative ways to eradicate the coronavirus at its international airports, which were once some of the busiest in the world. Last month, specially trained dogs were used at Dubai airport to detect COVID-19 in passengers, and the Emirates promised to cover travelers' expenses if they were diagnosed with the virus.

Other countries around the world have implemented or are considering similar geolocation technology. All newcomers to Singapore since mid-August have been required to wear an electronic monitoring device, and Hawaii was weighing whether to allow travelers to be quarantined in “resort bubbles” while equipped with tracking devices.
