The Abu Dhabi Department of Economic Development (ADDED) has closed a total of 354 business facilities in the emirate’s three regions including Abu Dhabi, Al Ain and Al Dhafra as part the department’s ongoing inspection campaigns.

The department said that 29 business facilities were closed for violating the precautionary measures.

Another 325 businesses were closed as a result of Covid-19 infections among employees working in these establishments.

ADDED instructed the owners of business facilities across the emirate to adhere to all the rules and regulations prescribed by the relevant authorities to combat the spread of the virus. It warned of strict action against all those violating the Covid-19 directives.

Earlier this month, authorities in the emirate announced new Covid-19 precautionary measures that would cover tourism, commercial and economic activities.

The operating capacity of shopping malls have been capped at 40 per cent; taxis at 45 per cent; gyms, private beaches and swimming pools at 50 per cent; restaurants, coffee shops, hotels, public beaches and parks at 60 per cent and buses at 75 per cent.
