Twelve businesses were hit with fines in Dibba last month for breaching Covid-19 regulations.

Inspectors swept through at least 410 Fujairah establishments, including supermarkets, restaurants and beauty salons, to check businesses were complying with coronavirus rules and general health and safety measures.

The city’s municipality fined 82 businesses and issued warnings to 62 others but did not name them.

Failing to adhere to mask wearing and testing regulations were the chief cause of the Covid-19 fines.

Inspections also confiscated 174 kilograms of expired food that was not fit for human consumption.

Another 5kg of cosmetic products that did not meet safety requirements was also seized.

“Owners were informed of the importance of adhering to safety rules including regular sanitisation to maintain public safety and stem the spread of coronavirus,” said Hassan Al Yamahi, director of Dibba Fujairah Municipality.

Authorities have made regular inspections at businesses and markets across the UAE to ensure compliance with Covid-19 rules.
