Government offices in Dubai will be allowed to function at full, 100 per cent of their capacity, it has been confirmed.

The decision was announced on Twitter by Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Dubai Crown Prince and chairman of the Executive Council

"Under the directives of @HHShkMohd, today we approved a decision that allows 50% of Dubai government employees to resume work at offices from Sunday, May 31, and 100% from June 14, 2020,  as we continue our gradual return to normal life with intensified precautionary measures," he said.

Sheikh Hamdan the decision comes as the emirate's wise investment in preparing for the future has paid off earlier than expected. "Our investments in the future paid off sooner than expected. It is reassuring to know we're heading in the right direction. Now, we're encouraged to redouble efforts, to accelerate our digital transformation for Dubai to become a model smart city, forever exceeding expectations," Sheikh Hamdan said.

"In the past months, the Dubai government has proven its full capability to work remotely, within smart environments that rely on highly efficient technologies & infrastructure. None of the vital services were affected despite the precautionary measures & movement restrictions imposed," the Dubai Crown Prince added.

Dubai reopened most commercial activities today with revised movement restriction timings as the UAE combats coronavirus Covid-19.
