Salons, Shops In Dubai Closed For Violating Partial Reopening Rules

Recently, Dubai announced partial reopening of malls, and shops in the city. However, a few fruits and vegetable shops as well as salons were shut down after they were caught for violations.

Dubai Municipality in collaboration with Dubai Economy closed down 10 men salons, 7 women salons and one store in the fruits and vegetable sector. The shops were caught violating the measures adopted for the partial opening stage.

Shopping malls, markets and commercial outlets in the city will be open daily from 12:00pm to 10:00pm. Furthermore, restaurants and shops are reduced to a 30 per cent capacity to combat the spread of the virus. Entertainment arenas and valet parking services in malls will continue to remain shut. Only 25 per cent of the parking spaces will be open in order to reduce overcrowding in malls.

In addition, people aged three to 12, or 60 and above are strictly not permitted inside the mall. Shoppers must wear face masks at all times, and everyone will have their temperature checked at the entrance. Further, shoppers must use only electronic payment options instead of cash. Returns and exchanges are only permitted if the product is faulty. Those who fail to wear a mask will have to pay a fine of AED 1000. All shopping malls will have a medical isolation room for emergency purposes in case someone in the mall is suspected to be infected with the virus.
