Covid - 19

Our Community Solidarity Policy for Covid - 19

“Be safe, be smart, be kind.”

- Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, WHO Director General

As all strong and sustainable institutions must do, UAQ FTZ too has adapted to the profound disruptions to our offices, business operations and markets by embracing the “new normal”.

Covid - 19 Precautions on our Premises

At Umm Al Quwain Free Trade Zone, we have been proactive in our Covid-19 Community Response and taken all efforts to create a low-risk environment with the following measures:

  • Hand Sanitiser Stations

    We have established sanitiser stations throughout our facilities to promote hand hygiene. All staff, visitors and members have access to places where they can wash their hands with soap and water.

  • Promoting Respiratory Hygiene

    We ensure that face masks and tissues are available throughout our premises and have kept bins to dispose of them.

  • Deep Surface Cleaning

    Our buildings and surroundings are being sanitised and deep cleaned at regular intervals to ensure that they remain disinfected.

  • Temperature Monitoring

    Temperatures of employees and visitors are checked before entering the premises as a safety measure.

  • Monitoring Employee Health

    We have asked our employees to be extra cautious when it comes to their personal health and have asked them to follow strict hygiene measures.

  • Regular Health Check-ups

    Health check-ups are conducted periodically to keep the Free Zone’s worksites and offices more protected.

  • Welfare Committee

    The Free Zone Authority has also deployed a Welfare Committee to facilitate treatment and provide necessary assistance to any client or employee infected by Covid-19.
