CAPE TOWN – The Eastern Cape Liquor Board (ECLB) on Monday raised concern over some liquor outlets not complying with COVID-19 health protocols.
Police officers noted a trend where patrons flouted COVID-19 mitigating measures by not wearing masks and practicing social distancing. They said outlets also ignored the allowed trading times.
“We are going to intensify our interventions by making sure that we continue to conduct blitz operations to clamp down on such liquor outlets that fail to comply with regulations,” said ECLB spokesperson Mgwebi Msiya.
Msiya said residents also had an obligation to ensure regulations were honoured.
