Prague police deploy more officers as people gather in sun

Police in Prague are continuing to deploy additional officers at spots where people are gathering because of the current warm weather, in order to check adherence to measures aimed at curbing the spread of Covid-19. A spokesperson said that on Tuesday, when it was also sunny, police had to take action at a number of places in the city, including Náplavka, Riegrovy sady and at a beer garden at Ohrada in Prague 3.

People are currently forbidden from drinking in public and respirators are compulsory. Officers carried out around 1,600 checks in central Prague on Tuesday, as well as 8,000 at city limits, as they enforced a ban on movement between districts.
