The police announced they will intensify inspections in shopping and entertainment centers to check compliance with coronavirus restrictions.
“For many businesses, we find that making money often prevails over the lives and health of people”, Alexandru Bejan, deputy head of the General Police Inspectorate, stated during a press briefing.
The main risk areas are shopping centers and markets, public transport and entertainment facilities. The police will intensify activities in these segments and impose fines where necessary.
Bejan says breaching the 22:00 curfew is one of the most common violations seen in commercial units, alongside not keeping proper distancing, and failure to mask up. About 8,000 non-compliance reports were issued over the past week alone.
Another 45 misdemeanor proceedings were initiated against managers of educational institutions for failing to comply with coronavirus restrictions, especially in Orhei district.
Between January 20-27, almost 3,500 people who were required to self-isolate were checked, with verification to intensify in this area as well, says Bejan. About 1,400 checks were carried out on public transport. Religious services were monitored in more than 1,400 places of worship on Saturday and Sunday.
