About fifteen percent of those checked by police and hygienists on Saturday night in bars and nightclubs in Prague violated anti-epidemic measures, the website of the Prague Hygiene Office reports.
They checked around 170 people, 24 of whom were fined on the spot for a total of CZK 12,000.
Police and hygienists carried out five inspections. “They mainly focused on controlling nightclubs, music and dance clubs in the center of the metropolis,” the hygienists said.

Upon entry, it is necessary to prove that you have been fully vaccinated at least 14 days in advance, submit a negative test, or prove that you have recovered from Coronavirus within the previous 180 days.
The police also found violations concerning the ban on dancing and the violation of social distancing rules.
In some places there was also a lack of disinfectants for customers.
