The Abu Dhabi Agriculture and Food Safety Authority issued a decision to administratively shut down two food establishments in the emirate.
The authorities closed the "Sultan's Hut" cafeteria in the Nahal area of Al-Ain, which holds the commercial licence number CN-1136232, and the "Star City Food" restaurant in Abu Dhabi, which holds the commercial licence number (CN- 1023766) for their violation of Law No. (2) of 2008 in the matter of food safety and the danger it poses to public health.
The authority clarified that the food control report on the administrative closure decision against the cafeteria resulted from repeated violations of health and food safety requirements.
Three violations were issued against this establishment, including a final warning to close for the reasons related to the low level of hygiene in the areas of handling and preserving food, and the failure of the owner of the establishment to fulfill the requirements ordered by the inspectors for a month.
The authorities also found intense insect activity in the preparation areas, which could contaminate foodstuffs.
There were two warnings to close the eateries, but despite this, they did not initiate any action.
The authority confirmed that the administrative closure order against these two facilities would continue, unless the reasons for it were found. The authorities indicated that the closure came within the framework of the inspection efforts aimed at strengthening the food safety system in Abu Dhabi, and confirming the supervisory role to ensure that all establishments adhere to food safety requirements.
The authority called on the public to report any violations that are detected in any food establishment or when they have doubts about the contents of the food item by calling the Abu Dhabi government toll-free number 800555 so that the authority's inspectors can take the necessary action.
The measure aims to enhance precautionary measures as part of efforts to curb the spread of COVID-19 and protect public health.
Abu Dhabi has issued fresh guidelines for attending events in the emirate.
Innovation and peace represent core factors in achieving prosperity for peoples and societies.
In the other cases, the same cost would be covered under the government-funded programs (ABM3-ABM5), which cover all Emiratis and their domestic workers, people of determination, pregnant women, residents over 50, people with chronic diseases, people with COVID-19 symptoms and those who mix with infected people.
The Abu Dhabi Police monitored the video of two young men as they entered a mall in the emirate and photographed themselves without face masks.
The authorities will carry out regular checkups of students, all workers in the educational field, including educational and administrative staff and aid workers for smooth governance.
The 29-year-old victim testified during investigations saying, "I was walking on a sidewalk near a shopping mall in Dubai, when the defendant surprised me and reached out to grab my phone twice.”
