Dubai: 2 sports centres shut for flouting Covid rules
6 others were fined, while eight received warnings.
Two sports establishments in Dubai have been ordered shut, while six others were fined for flouting Covid safety rules.
The establishments were issued fines for offences like crowded venues and unmasked patrons. The closure orders were issued for repeat offences.
Eight other establishments escaped with a warning following inspection of sports facilities across Dubai.
The penalties came as the Dubai Sports Council teamed up with the Dubai Economy and the municipality to conduct Covid safety inspections.
The council has urged all clubs, academies, and sports and training centres in Dubai to continue complying with all the protocols and safety guidelines.
The facilities, among other things, have been instructed to make sure they maintain the hygiene and sanitisation requirements as mandated by authorities.
The regulations also require facilities to display public announcements, and awareness signages in “highly visible” areas. They must also maintain adequate records of their members, including names, telephone numbers and visit dates.
