Police said a club in the Famagusta district was ordered to close on Friday night after it let in around 1,000 people, many of whom dancing.

This is the fifth time the club has broken the rules imposed to stop the spread of coronavirus. According to reports, the club is Nava near Protaras.

The club was ordered to suspend operation until Monday inclusive when the case will be filed in court.

According to the police, officers found in the premises around 1,000 people, several of whom were dancing on a dance floor, while there was no social distancing.

In other checks, police booked in total five businesses and 30 individuals during 5,935 checks in all districts between Friday morning and Saturday.

In addition to the club in the Famagusta district, police booked a business in Nicosia, another in Limassol and two in Paphos. Most cases concerned employees not wearing a mask, failure to ask customers if they had a SafePass, and lack of signs.

As regards the fines issued to individuals, most concerned non-use of masks.

Police said they continue checks and urged business owners and individuals to “consider the seriousness of the situation” and observe the measures.
