Three restaurants in Ajman were shut down for violating Covid-19 precautionary measures and safety rules, the National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority (NCEMA) announced on Saturday.

Brigadier Khalid Mohammed Al Nuaimi, deputy director-general of police operations at the Ajman Police, said the three restaurants were shut down after authorities found them violating safety measures, in addition to failure to comply with public health conditions.

All three restaurants will be temporarily closed till further notice.

The NCEMA, Ajman, urged all establishments in the emirate to adhere to precautionary and preventive measures and maintain public health requirements. "The competent authorities will not tolerate anyone who does not abide by the specified requirements and procedures," Al Nuaimi said.
