ABU DHABI, April 5, 2020

The Abu Dhabi Department of Economic Development (ADDED) has issued a new circular extending the temporary closure of commercial centres, shopping malls, cinemas, electronic game halls (arcades) and other entertainment destinations in the emirate until further notice.
This is in continuation of the preventive and precautionary measures being implemented to help combat the spread of the Covid-19 and further maintain the health, safety and security of community members, it stated.
Chairman Mohammed Ali Al Shorafa said that the newly issued circular is being implemented in cooperation and co-ordination with the National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority (NCEMA) and the Ministry of Health and Prevention (MoHaP).
Al Shorafa added that circulars have also been issued for suspension of valet parking services; closure of fitness and body building halls; and the extension of ban on hookah (shisha) in restaurants and cafes until further notice. 
The series of circulars released by ADDED reflects its key commitment towards implementing strategic precautionary measures aimed at maintaining the health, safety and security of citizens and residents of the emirate.
The new circular directs all licensed companies and establishments in Abu Dhabi to continue to comply with the order to remain closed, which means not to open their doors to the public offering their products and services, he added. 
ADDED has ordered all facilities and establishments to comply and adhere to the directives in the circular--starting from the issuance date of the order and until further notice. 
The department will be carrying out inspection visits to ensure compliance with the order and monitor any violations being made.-TradeArabia News Service
