Famagusta district court set September 13 as the date for the court case of Nava club, which was suspended on Friday night, after serious violations of the rules taken to stop the spread of coronavirus.

It is the fifth time the club near Protaras has broken the rules.

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.

Fines were issued to individuals and mostly concerned non-use of masks.

The club has reopened as the ban was only in force until Monday when the case was registered before the district court of Famagusta, which set September 13 as the date for the trial.

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