Dubai Economy emphasised that all stores and outlets as well as their customers must strictly adhere to the precautionary measures.
Dubai Economy shut down a department store and issued a Dh50,000 fine against it on Wednesday for not adhering to Covid-19 precautionary measures.
A large crowd had gathered inside the store due to a discount sale, according to the Dubai Media Office.
"Dubai Economy recently summoned the management of a department store that failed to comply with the precautionary measures against Covid-19, most notably physical distancing, during a discount sale. The sale had seen visitors thronging the store, ignoring the risk of physical contact," the Dubai Media Office said.
