Authorities in Dubai are continuing to crack down on food outlets that don’t comply with the precautionary measures related to COVID-19.

As many as 18 restaurants, cafeterias and food establishments have been shut down for not following the rules.

They were closed following extensive inspections carried out by the municipality.

Food outlets have started serving customers again after the government eased movement restrictions.

However, they are only allowed to operate at 30 per cent of capacity, with tables set two metres apart.
