Amer centre shut down in Dubai for violating Covid-19 safety guidelines

The major violations detected at the centre included exceeding 30 per cent staff limit.

The Dubai Economy has ordered closure of an Amer Centre in Al Riggat Al Buteen area for failure to comply with the safety measures announced to contain the spread of Covid-19.

The major violations detected at the centre included exceeding 30 per cent staff limit, non-installation of thermal scanners for customers, not displaying physical distancing stickers and failure to ensure distancing in customer seating.

Amer Centres are private facilities providing various visa and residency services as authorised by the General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs (GDRFA).

However, Dubai has been witnessing very strong compliance rate to Covid-19 rules over last couple of weeks, reaching 100 per cent on some days. The Dubai Economy said it inspected 1,028 commercial outlets on Tuesday and found all of them compliant, except one. No outlet was issued warning or fine for not abiding by the precautionary measures.

The regulator has increased inspections as the economy slowly reopens after easing the restrictions imposed due to Covid-19. The daily inspections start with the market opening time in the morning and last till the markets are closed. The Dubai Economy directed traders to comply with the precautionary measures.

The regulator also urged all service centres to adhere to the precautionary guidelines, such as wearing face masks and gloves, ensuring physical distancing and displaying stickers, installing transparent barriers between employees and customers and keeping the number of employees and customers within 30 per cent of the total capacity.

It called on consumers to report any non-compliance to the Covid-19 precautionary guidelines via the Dubai Consumer App, by calling 600545555, or on the Consumerrights.ae website.
