Dubai closes restaurant, fines gym for not adhering to Covid guidelines

Daily inspection visits are being carried out across the emirate, officials confirmed


A restaurant in Dubai was closed down after it was found to have violated the Covid-19 guidelines in the emirate.

The restaurant in Satwa was ordered closed on Thursday after its distribution of free meals led to passers-by gathering in front of the store, disregarding physical distancing guidelines and causing congestion, the Commercial Compliance and Consumer Protection (CCCP) sector in Dubai Economy stated.

In another incident, Dubai Economy in cooperation with the Dubai Sports Council, imposed a fine on a fitness centre for not adhering to physical distancing, especially at their reception, and employees’ lack of commitment to wearing masks.

Officials said field inspections are being carried out regularly to ensure that all companies, merchants, consumers and the public adhere to the various precautionary measures and protocols announced in Dubai to limit the spread of Covid-19, including physical distancing, wearing masks and gloves, as well as sanitisation.

The daily inspection visits by CCCP cover all areas in Dubai, including open markets and commercial centres. Inspections conducted on Thursday showed that 578 stores fully complied with the precautionary measures and guidelines.

Dubai Economy reaffirmed that any excesses or non-compliance that pose a risk or harm in any way will be dealt with “firmly and in accordance with the laid-down procedures”.

It also called on consumers to report any non-compliance via the Dubai Consumer app, by calling 600545555, or on the website.
