All private tutoring taking place in homes or in educational institutions has been banned with immediate effect, according to a communication issued by the Ministry of Education on Thursday afternoon. 

The ban does not include remote learning which is currently offered by schools. 

Dr Amna Al Dahak, spokeswoman for the Ministry of Education, said the decision was made following advice from the UAE Cabinet.

"The decision comes with the aim of ensuring the continuity of education in the country under exceptional circumstances, while maintaining the security and safety of our pupils and the school community," Dr Al Dahak said.
