“Though police are primarily focusing on the most severe breaches of Covid violations such as large gatherings, officers continue to respond to reports from the public of non-essential businesses operating illegally and smaller house parties, which are also undoubtedly contributing to the spread of the virus,” said commander Dave Stringer.
“We are fully committed to getting the spread of the virus across the capital under control – this means addressing a vast array of violations of the rules.
“We know that the majority of people are being safe, but the minority who continue to contravene Covid legislation are doing a disservice to their fellow citizens and to health professionals across the country who continue to work in the throes of this public health emergency.
“We appeal to the public to stay at home, stay safe, and protect each other from infection.”
