Nine businesses were fined €17,750 in total in the past 24 hours after some of their customers were found without a SafePass, among other things, police said on Sunday.

Police also arrested a 54-year-old woman who had tried to cross from the government-controlled areas to the north with a forged PCR test. She was later released and is to appear in court at a later stage, police said.

More than 6,400 checks were carried out in all districts during the past 24 hours, police said, mainly in areas where presenting a SafePass is obligatory.

During the checks, 86 people were booked mainly for not wearing a mask, while six people were found without a SafePass.

Nine businesses – six in Limassol, one in Larnaca and two in Paphos – were booked for various offences concerning the law on infectious diseases. They were slapped with fines totalling €17,750. Four of the businesses were found to serve customers who did not have a SafePass while in another, an employee was found without a SafePass.
