Police pounce on Eastern Cape taverns not complying with Covid-19 protocol
Patrons at three taverns in Motherwell in Nelson Mandela Bay ignored Covid-19 regulations at the weekend, potentially putting hundreds of people at risk of infection.
Motherwell is considered a Covid-19 hotspot but throngs of revellers — most not wearing masks and not socially distancing — packed the three taverns on Saturday night.
One tavern was fined R3,000 for selling alcohol and operating after the new curfew, which runs from 10pm to 4am.
