Restaurants have been warned against receiving customers inside.

Five restaurants have been shut down by the the department of economic development for not adhering to precautionary measures put in place to stymie the spread of Covid-19.

Faisal Alyoon, manager, control and trade protection department, said they have recently issued a number of circulars to ensure public safety against the global pandemic.

“The erring eateries, detected during surprise inspections, were found to have received customers inside the restaurants despite repeated warnings.”

All restaurants have been warned against receiving customers inside, he added. “Only external orders and deliveries are permitted.”

Staff workers in the reported eateries also didn’t wear facemasks and hand gloves as instructed, he pointed out.

“Facemasks and gloves are paramount for restaurants’ staff, particularly when preparing food.”

“The department spares no effort to raise public awareness and ensure their compliance with the prescribed precautionary measures.”

A few days back, the department seized thousands of sub-standard facemasks which were illegally made and distributed by a car upholstery shop. “The shop was also unlicensed to carry out such activity.”
