COVID-19: A fine of Dhs3,000 is imposed in the UAE for not wearing a facemask in enclosed areas

To combat the spread of COVID-19 in the UAE, officials have made it essential to wear a facemask in closed and indoor areas. Facemask violators will risk a Dhs3,000 punishment, according to health experts.

“We would like to remind you that wearing masks in closed locations is mandatory, since failure to do so is a violation punishable by a fine of up to Dhs3,000, according to Public Prosecution Decision No. (38) for the year 2020,” the health experts added.

Starting on Wednesday, June 15, 2022, all groups will be required to wear facemasks.

However, in recent months, specialists have observed several behaviors that have become a threat to society and public health, as well as an indicator of a lack of vigilance in the implementation of preventative and preventive measures, which has harmed the recovery efforts of all parties.

Wearing masks has been demonstrated to be one of the most essential aspects in maintaining health and avoiding infection with COVID-19, according to studies.

The mask’s success is based on its ability to slow down and weaken the spread of disease, particularly in enclosed and crowded spaces.

According to the UAE Ministry of Health, the increase in COVID-19 cases in the UAE is due to neglect and reckless behavior in adopting precautionary measures.

The public is required to observe the following guidelines, according to the authorities:

  • When you’re in a confined space, use a facemask.
  • Prevent overcrowding
  • Be cautious when traveling
  • Confirm the SOPs you must adhere to in the target country.
  • Consult the UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs about your travel destination.
  • Make sure you check in on a regular basis.

Covid-19 is still present, according to experts, and our first line of defense is still responding to it in order to protect lives and national gains, as well as to protect you and your loved ones from its spread. Our duty today is to preserve the state’s great and mighty efforts, which should not be in vain.
