Coronavirus: six construction sites closed over non-compliance with protective measures (Updated)

The labour inspection department on Thursday temporarily shuttered six construction sites that failed to comply with the protective measures against the spread of Covid-19.

In a written statement, the department said “some construction sites did not have the required signs, sanitary facilities, cleaning facilities, antiseptics, the distances between the workers were not observed, nor were they informed about the protective measures.”

The department issued six closure notices, and made strict recommendations for improving protective measures to three construction sites in Nicosia and Limassol. A total of 800 businesses were checked on Thursday, 684 retail stores and 116 construction sites.

Infractions may result in fines, warnings, or being ordered to shut down premises or a construction site until compliance is assured.

Inspections will continue over the following days to ensure better compliance with the relevant decrees issued during the pandemic.
