Gulf Today, Staff Reporter

The Emergency, Crisis, and Disaster management team in the Emirate of Ajman, in coordination with Ajman Police and the Department of Economic Development, closed a store for not adhering to COVID-19 precautionary measures.

The departmental store had promotions and offers, which caused overcrowding among shoppers.

A video showed no one was adhering to social distancing guidelines.

The store received more than the capacity of the shoppers it can inside the shop.

The shop was fined Dhs5,000 for violating the directives issued regarding the application of precautionary and preventive measures to limit the spread of the COVID-19.

The authorities calls on shopkeepers in the emirate to adhere to all guidelines and decisions issued to confront the pandemic, limit the spread of the virus and reduce cases.


The officials stressed that they would not tolerate any violations and issue hefty fines.

From the first week of March, the Emergency and Crisis management team announced that it has mandated specific establishments to conduct a regular weekly PCR examination for all their employees, except those who have received two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, with a commitment to download the Al-Hosn application.

The move comes within the framework of the efforts to combat the spread of the coronavirus.

The decision includes workers in restaurants, cafes, supermarkets, gyms, men’s and women’s salons, labour recruitment offices, food and meal delivery companies and car washrooms.

The inspection and control teams will carry out inspection rounds on the employees of the specified institutions and companies three days following the issuance of the decision.
