Nurseries are to operate at reduced capacity, with children to be cared for in ‘bubbles’ of no more than 10.

Nurseries and childcare centres in the UAE will be allowed to operate with all Covid-19 precautionary measures in place, the National Crisis & Emergency Management Authority announced on Thursday.

Recently, around 79 nurseries in the country came together to appeal to authorities for support and reopening guidance. They had expressed their readiness to comply with all safety measures, if they were given a chance to operate again.

All sterilisation and hygiene procedures related to the running of nurseries will be applied, taking into account a physical distancing of 1.5 metres and a density ratio of 3.5 square metres in each group.

Groups will be separated from each other and maximum possible space should be maintained.

Competent authorities will inspect the nurseries periodically to ensure that the precautionary measures are strictly implemented. Penalties will be imposed on any institution that violates the national protocol.
