Two gyms in Dubai have been shut down for flouting Covid safety rules. Violations like failure to wear face masks and crowding were spotted as the Dubai Economy and Dubai Sports Council conducted safety inspection checks.

This comes a day after the Dubai Economy shut down two gyms and a department store for similar violations.

In its daily inspection report for Monday, the authority said it had issued 13 fines. The violations were spotted in Al Qouz, Al Sabkha, Al Bateen, Jafliya, and shopping malls.
