COVID-19: 131 People Issued Public Health Infringement Notices For Failing To Wear A Mask

Between the 4th to the 6th September 2021, one hundred and thirty-one people were issued Public Health Infringement Notices for failing to wear a mask in a public place.

The offence of failing to wear a face covering (mask) accounted for the highest number of PHINs issued for the 3 day period which is an indication that many are still taking these life saving measures lightly.

Two hundred and sixty three PHINs in total were issued which also included 62 for social gathering and 58 for breach of curfew.

The Southern Division recorded the most PHINs issued followed by the West, East, Central and North.

Other bookings included failure to wear a mask while travelling in a Public Service Vehicle, failure to comply with orders with regards to the consumption of liquor and kava and failure to comply with 50% passenger capacity in PSV’s.

We are not out of the woods yet and people must not be complacent.

As reiterated by the Ministry of Health people should still follow the COVID safe protocols and we may continue to wear masks and adhere to the 2 metres physical distancing rule for a long time even after people are fully vaccinated.
