274 shops found to fully comply with Covid-19 precautionary measures and procedures.

A cafe in Karama was shut by the Dubai Economy in co-operation with the Dubai Municipality and the Dubai Tourism after the outlet ignored physical distancing guidelines issued by the authorities to fight Covid-19.

The action came following response from the public to the call of Dubai Economy to report commercial establishments and outlets not adhering to the precautionary measures. Dubai Economy also imposed penalties on seven commercial establishments for a lack of commitment to wearing masks among their employees.

The daily inspection visits by the Commercial Compliance and Consumer Protection (CCCP) Sector in Dubai Economy yesterday showed that 274 shops and commercial establishments fully complied with the precautionary measures. Dubai Economy continue to ensure that everyone in the emirate, including shops and consumers, comply fully to the precautionary guidelines, and also enhance awareness on their role in maintaining the well-being of the society as well as business continuity. 

Dubai Economy praised the cooperation being extended by the public to its inspection teams and various departments through reporting negative practices and non-compliance to precautionary guidelines. Any non-compliance that would pose a risk or harm will be dealt with firmly and in accordance with the laid-down procedures, Dubai Economy reminded.

Dubai Economy called on consumers to report any non-compliance to the precautionary guidelines via the Dubai Consumer App or by calling 600545555, or on the website.
