The establishments were fined for their failure to maintain the mandatory safe distance as well as non-compliance with the face mask rule.

Continuing with inspections of sports institutions and events, teams from the c and Dubai Economy found five sports establishments flouting Covid-19 precautionary measures.

The five sports establishments violating Covid-19 safety rules were issued fines, while six others have been let off with warnings, the Dubai Sports Council announced in a tweet.

The establishments were fined for their failure to maintain the mandatory safe distance at the premises as well as non-compliance with the face mask rule. The inspections have had the desired results as the number of violators has gradually decreased. The inspection drive has increased awareness about the need to comply with all safety regulations.

The council, meanwhile, has urged all clubs, academies, and sports and training centres in Dubai not to relax and continue complying with all the protocols and safety guidelines, which have been drawn up in accordance with the safety guidelines issued by Dubai’s Supreme Committee of Crisis and Disaster Management and other relevant authorities.

The facilities, among other things, have been instructed to make sure they maintain the hygiene and sanitisation requirements as mandated by authorities, which includes maintaining a regular cleaning regime, and ensuring the 2 metre safe distancing rule is respected at all times.

The facilities have also been instructed to follow all the other safety protocols and guidelines like wearing masks, checking temperature of visitors, providing sanitisers, etc.

The regulations also require facilities to display public announcements, and awareness signage in highly visible areas. They must also maintain adequate records of their members, including names, telephone numbers and visit dates, to assist if contact tracing becomes necessary.

In bid to limit the spread of the virus, the Dubai Economy has urged the public to cooperate and report any violation through the Dubai Consumer app, or by calling 600545555, or by visiting the consumerrights.ae website.
