Movement between the regions of Abu Dhabi, Al Ain and Al Dhafrah, as well as in and out of the emirate, has been banned, it was announced on Sunday.
The ban, which comes into effect from Tuesday, June 2, will be in place for a period of one week, the Abu Dhabi Media Office said.
The ban is applicable to all residents, including UAE nationals, and only those working in vital sectors and holding special permits are exempt from this movement ban.
This is to enhance the effectiveness of the national screening programme, the media office said.
Authorities have also eased some restrictions on activities in the emirate, including raising the capacity in malls and restaurants inside malls to 40 per cent.
Hotel beaches, restaurants outside malls and museums are also allowed to re-open with a capacity of 40 per cent. Public beaches remain closed.
