The teachers and other academic staff received their test results within 12 hours.

Over 35,000 teachers and staff from schools across Dubai have undergone Covid-19 testing for free, it was announced on Tuesday. The tests were conducted within six days at nine centres set up especially for this purpose.

The teachers and other academic staff received their test results within 12 hours.

“Ahead of the start of the new academic year, the Dubai Health Authority (DHA) ensured comprehensive preparations were in place to screen school staff for Covid-19. It formed a specialised task force consisting doctors, nurses and medical staff, and provided them with state-of-the-art equipment to conduct the tests,” the Government of Dubai Media Office said in a statement.

The DHA teamed up with education regulator Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) and the Covid-19 Command and Control Centre (CCC) to conduct the tests as part of precautionary measures to ensure safety at schools.
