One business and 14 individuals were booked for failing to abide by coronavirus measures, with the main violation being failure to wear a facemask, police said on Wednesday.

According to a written statement, a Paphos-based business was booked for €500 after an employee was found working without a facemask, while there was also no antibacterial in the premises, police said.

The fines came after 3,270 checks carried out between 6am on Tuesday and 6am on Wednesday.

Most checks, 1,414, were conducted by officers in the capital who did not report any violations.

Five people were booked in Limassol after 215 checks, one in Larnaca following 510 checks and two in Paphos after 260 checks.

Famagusta officers fined six people after 422 checks, while no violations were reported in Morphou after 140 checks.

Traffic, marine and port police also carried out 82 and 227 checks without reporting any violations.

A police spokesman said most fines concerned the violation of the facemask mandate.
