A total of 663 shops and commercial establishments were found to have fully complied with the precautionary measures.

As many as 17 commercial establishments were fined and 15 businesses warned for not adhering to the precautionary measures put in place to stymie the spread of Covid-19 pandemic.

The Dubai Economy imposed fines on the commercial units as the employees were not wearing masks. The violations were spotted in various establishments dealing in retail, general trade, customer service, textile and fabric, perfumes, pharmacy, grocery, shipping, and computer equipment, across shopping centres and in Al Muraqqabat, Al Daghaya, and Al Ras.

The inspectors also warned 15 other businesses for not placing the physical distancing stickers as required. The warnings aimed to ensure the establishments’ commitment to the safety guidelines.

The inspections were carried out on Wednesday by field inspectors from the Commercial Compliance & Consumer Protection (CCCP) Sector in Dubai Economy.

A total of 663 shops and commercial establishments were found to have fully complied with the precautionary measures.

Stressing that public health is a top priority, the Dubai Economy reminded that stern action will be taken against any non-compliance with the precautionary measures found during its inspections or that may be reported by consumers and the public.

It called on everyone to cooperate and contribute to keeping the emirate’s economy moving forward in spite of the pandemic threat, which in turn has contributed to commercial activities resuming gradually, leading to the opening of all sectors and the economic reset in the emirate.

The Dubai Economy also urged everyone to report any non-compliance to the precautionary guidelines through the Dubai Consumer app available on the Apple, Google, and Huawei stores, by calling 600545555, or by visiting the Consumerrights.ae website.
