- Advertisment -

Dubai Police said that around 100 beachgoers in the emirate have been fined for not wearing face masks and violating social distancing measures for the first three days of beaches reopening.

Since Friday, beaches in JBR, Al Mamzar, Jumeirah, and Umm Suqeim have reopened.

Dubai Police’s fleet has been patrolling in the area to monitor if the preventive measures are being observed by the beachgoers.

“We recoreded about 100 violations in the first three days or the reopening for people who weren’t wearing masks and weren’t leaving a safe distance between them and other beachgoers,” Lt. Ahmad Al Marzouqi from Beaches Security Section at Ports Police Station was quoted as saying by Gulf News, adding that some people weren’t following the precautionary measures even at the beginning of the reopening.

“But after issuing the fines, people started to comply with the precautionary measures,” he added.

As per the list of fines for violators, not wearing masks in public places attracts AED3,000 fine; and anyone seen not following the social distancing protocols will also get the same amount of fine.

“The most important thing now is social distancing for at least two metres and wearing masks after coming out of the sea,” Al Marzouqi said.
