The Ajman Emergency, Crisis, and Disaster Management team has announced that cafes and restaurants in the emirate will need to be closed by 11:00 pm.
Officials state that the new precautionary measure is effective beginning tonight, February 23.
The rule exempts cafeterias and restaurants that “provide fast food”.
While dine-in services will have to close down by 11:00 pm, the rule states that delivery services may still continue.
Prior to this updated rule, restaurants in Ajman had to be closed by 12:00 midnight.
