The test fee exemption comes as part of the reopening guidelines set for places of worship in Abu Dhabi.

Religious leaders in Abu Dhabi will now be able to take Covid-19 tests for free, local authorities announced on Friday.

The test fee exemption comes as part of the reopening guidelines set for places of worship in the Capital, the Abu Dhabi Government Media Office said in a tweet.

“The Department of Community Development (DCD) is exempting religious leaders in AbuDhabi from Covid-19 test fees in order to support places of worship in implementing precautionary measures to protect the community’s health and safety,” it tweeted.

Mosques started welcoming back the faithful in July, while churches and all other non-Muslim places of worship in Abu Dhabi reopened in September, with strict safety measures in place.

The DCD reiterated that all places of worship should accommodate only up to 30 per cent of its capacity. Both worshippers and staff members were also reminded to stick to the precautions set to prevent the spread of Covid-19. Masks are mandatory and social distancing must be observed.
