Patients and visitors above the age of 16 will require a green pass on the Al Hosn app to access SEHA healthcare facilities.
According to the Abu Dhabi Health Services Company (SEHA), the new rule will come into effect on Tuesday, September 7.
The statement clarified that this will exclude those visiting emergency departments and drive-through testing facilities.
The announcement follows the Abu Dhabi Emergency Crisis and Disasters Committee's latest directive which approved the use of the green pass on Al Hosn app. This is based on the emirate's strategy to combat COVID-19 by focusing on vaccinations, active contact tracings, and other precautionary measures.
