Sharjah jet ski rental companies fined for Covid-19 rule violations


DUBAI – Several jet ski rental companies in Sharjah have been fined Dh1,000 for violating the UAE’s anti-coronavirus measures, a top official said.

“The inspections will continue and the fines will be doubled if the offence is repeated,” said Khalid bin Falah Al Suwaidi, Assistant Director-General of customer service at Sharjah Municipality.

Al Suwaidi said that warnings were also issued to many other companies.

New precautionary measures include the constant sterilization of jet skis, wearing of face mask and gloves, and operation at 50 percent capacity.

Inspections will focus at Al Mamzar beach, which witnesses a high public turnout for water sports during summer.

Al Suwaidi said the municipality will continue to tighten inspections for violations, including the failure to wear a life jacket, facemasks and gloves. ICA/Expat Media
