SHARJAH – A popular hypermarket in Sharjah has been shut down for drawing crowds and violating the UAE’s precautionary measures against the spread of Covid-19.
According to the Sharjah Economic Development Department (SEDD), a big crowd was seen at the hypermarket, in violation of social distancing rules.
Inspectors said that the hypermarket accommodated more visitors than it was allowed to have. The authority did not name the hypermarket.
A salon in Sharjah was also shut down for a similar violation, according to SEDD.
Sharjah has reduced visitor capacities at malls and other public places as the emirate tightened its safety rules against Covid-19.
Authorities urged the public to report violators by calling the toll free number 80080000 or through www.shjconsumer.ae. ICA/Expat Media
