The fines concerned a Famagusta-based business which was booked for €3,000 for allowing customers to dance, while another establishment in Nicosia was fined €1,000 after the manager was found working without a SafePass.

Police also booked two businesses in Larnaca for €500 each after they found employees working without a facemask.

Apart from the businesses, 31 individuals were also booked across the island after 3,499 checks.

Ten people were booked in Famagusta after 571 checks, seven in Nicosia following 1,493 inspections, six in Larnaca after 704 checks and five in Limassol after 205 checks. Three people were also booked in Paphos after 288 checks.
