According to their daily report, the municipality shut down nine salons and two centres, and issued 13 fines and 81 warnings.

DM inspectors carried out 6,859 visits and the total compliance with precautionary measures was found to be 94.25 per cent, while the number of outlets that met the requirements and safety measures reached 6,759.
