Oasis Malls to close Dubai, Sharjah centres for two weeks

The closures in Dubai and Sharjah do not include the Carrefour Market stores and pharmacies.

Oasis Malls will close its two shopping centres in the UAE for two weeks, the company has announced.

The closures in Dubai and Sharjah do not include the Carrefour Market stores and pharmacies, which have been allowed to remain open during the two weeks.

Oasis Malls management said the company will carry on with its daily cleaning and disinfection practices in line with the UAE Ministry of Health and the Dubai and Sharjah Health Authorities.

An Oasis Malls spokesperson said: “As the heartbeat of the city, the wellbeing of all our staff, visitors and the public is of utmost importance and as such, we continue to urge all members of the public to adhere to the preventative methods set in place by the UAE government.”

Additional measures have been taken to contain the spread of Covid-19.

In Dubai, a thermal camera has been installed at the mall's main entrance, while handheld scanners have also been ordered to both the Dubai and Sharjah locations, to be used at entry points for the basement parking, which will be fully functional and act as an alternate access point to the Carrefour stores as well as the iCare clinic in Oasis Mall Dubai and Life Pharmacy in Sharjah.
