#CORONAVIRUSMALTA: Groups of more than three people will be fined €100 - Minister

file-2From Tuesday, it will be illegal to congregate in groups of more than three people, Home Affairs Minister Byron Camilleri has announced.

Last week, the government said crowds of more than five people would be dispersed by the police. Camilleri said he was angered by what he saw over the weekend, especially on Sunday, when crowds gathered at certain public places, such as promenades and beaches.

He said a new Legal Notice will now limit the number to three. Those who do not obey will be fined €100.

This will not apply to groups exceeding three if all the members of that group live in the same household, Camilleri clarified.

Camilleri also announced that WiFi in public areas will be restricted to discourage people from congregating there.

Other police units will be utilised to carry out patrols, including the Cavalry section, which will be patrolling in rural areas.
