- Alicante city police fining smokers, people not wearing masks and closing business premises after ignoring Spain Gov. legislation amid COVID-19 ‘spike’ – highest in Europe
By Andrew Atkinson
The Policia local in Alicante have been out in force in the city – fining smokers – those not wearing masks and closed business premises having ignored the Spain Government legislation following the ‘spike’ in coronavirus cases – the highest in Europe.
Smoking in a public place is prohibited. The fines in Alicante were imposed for smoking, along with disobeying social distance on public roads, amid new coronavirus measures after a spike in cases during July and August.
The Policia local also closed down a kebab establishment in the city – after disobeying the government’s imposed closing time of 1am.
The Policia local (Alicante) walked the city’s streets writing out fines under COVID-19 measures, imposed by the Generalitat Valenciana in a bid to reduce the advance of the pandemic spike.
Fines were also imposed to those for not wearing a face mask in the city centre.
