The Suva City Council has had to resort to barricading the area known as the Milo Mile exercise facility along Queen Elizabeth Drive with a temporary fence.

This is after 16 people were found using the facility earlier this week.

Suva and Lami special administrator chair Isikeli Tikoduadua said the incident happened early in the morning and it was brought to their attention by concerned citizens.

“From what was reported and pictures, it seemed that it was a group of young men using the facility,” he said.

“This is against the directives given by the Ministry of Health. People should not be gathering in large groups. No matter what the purpose is.

“We have kept the footpaths of My Suva Picnic Park open and still allow people to walk or run around Albert Park. These must be done individually or with a member of a family who are in the same home bubble.”

Mr Tikoduadua said this again goes to show that people were not taking advice which would help the nation get back on track.

He said people could still exercise at home or take walks and runs by themselves.

The Suva City Council has been working very closely with the Fiji Police Force. Mr Tikoduaudua said the council would not hesitate to get people arrested “those who were not adhering to COVID safe directives”.
