Hundreds of high school students in Abu Dhabi who opted to attend in-person classes were required to undergo COVID-19 testing for free ahead of the new academic school year set to begin next week, according to local media reports.

Drive-through centers and government facilities around Abu Dhabi welcomed students on Wednesday and Thursday, authorities said.

Students will need proof of a negative test result to their school campuses on September 27.

The pupils taking the tests have not attended in-person classes since March, when schools were closed to slow the spread of the virus.

However, students under the age of 11 were allowed to return earlier this month. Students between the ages of 11 and 14 will continue to study from home until further notice, authorities said.

Students in grade 9 to 11 who are expected to take international exams – including the GSCEs, A-levels, International Baccalaureate or an equivalent exam – were given the option of attending in-person classes.
