Dubai, Coronavirus, Closures, Closed

A number of restaurants have been closed by Dubai Economy over the weekend, including one in Satwa that was distributing free food.

It was one of several venues closed for failing to adhere to social distancing requirements, with Dubai Media Office saying it was “ordered closed by CCCP after their distribution of free meals led to passers-by gathering in front of the store, disregarding physical distancing guidelines and causing congestion”.


This was followed up by the closure of a café in the Karama area by Dubai Economy, in copperation with Dubai Municipality and Dubai Tourism, for not adhering to the precautionary measures, specifically social distancing. The café has been closed for a month and has been fined “a large amount” after a video circulated on social media showing its failure to social distance.

It follows a government press conference on Thursday evening which highlighted the increasing numbers of coronavirus patients in Dubai. An updated list of violations and penalties to curb the spread of COvid-19 has since been released which all establishments must adhere to.
