Abu Dhabi Police have handed out face masks and personal protective supplies to residents in certain areas as part of the "For Your Safety" campaign.

People in Musaffah, Al Mafraq, Al Shawamekh and Al Ain City were the beneficiaries of the community campaign aimed at helping to curb the spread of coronavirus.

As part of the country's efforts to limit infection rates, residents have been asked to wear masks at all times when outside of the home.

"The campaign aims to distribute face masks among workers in their workplaces and accommodation camps and to boost their awareness of the precautionary measures against the virus, including proper wearing of face masks and gloves and adhering to social distancing protocols," Captain Mohamed Musabah Al Saadi, of Abu Dhabi Police, said.

Authorities have also carried out an anti-coronavirus awareness campaign in parts of Al Ain City.

The Abu Dhabi Public Health Centre has called on companies to follow health regulations to stop the spread of Covid-19 in labour accommodation.

Companies must provide sanitisers and face masks, regularly disinfect public transport and accommodation and provide medical care for all workers.

The centre commended Trojan General Contracting, a construction company that specialises in mass housing, for following safety guidelines at labour accommodation camps.

The company has provided its workers with sanitisers, arranged medical check-ups and provided self-isolation facilities for those who may have contacted Covid-19.

The UAE has taken strong steps to tackle the spread of coronavirus in recent weeks.

A nationwide sterilisation drive to clean roads, streets and public transport vehicles remains in operation in Abu Dhabi, with residents told to stay in their homes from 8pm until 6am each day while the clean-up campaign is taking place.

Schools, universities and non-essential stores also remain closed to the public as part of the precautionary measures.
