A popular outlet in Doha selling chocolates faced a temporary closure by the Doha Municipality for violating health regulations. The Municipality has also closed down a shopping outlet in the Duhail area, for similar violations, said Mohammed Lahdan Al Kaabi, assistant director of the health affairs department at Doha Municipality. The action was taken following inspections conducted on various outlets including restaurants, sweet shops, groceries and barber shops during the Eid holidays. “We have been keeping a strict vigil on all outlets to ensure that they comply with the health standards and regulations,” said Al Kaabi. He said the Municipality had initiated legal action against some barber shops that were found to be violating the instructions issued in the context of swine flu. All barbers are required to wear hand gloves and face masks while attending to their customers. The official, however, added that most barber shops had been complying to these guidelines. “ Wearing a face mask is good for barbers as well as their customers, as a precaution against H1N1. Some barber shops are found to be violating this rule despite warnings issued to them. We have started legal action against such shops,” said Al Kaabi.
