Due to prevailing weather conditions, federal government employees in the UAE will work remotely on Friday, October 27.

However, this decision excludes those whose presence is required at the workplace.

The UAE Cabinet also directed government schools to switch to remote learning on Friday.

October 27 was also declared a remote working day for employees of all Dubai government entities due to weather conditions.

Meanwhile, Umm Al Quwain has implemented remote learning across public and private schools in the emirate.
