We Will Continue Arresting People Not Wearing Masks – ZRP

ZRP has warned members of the public that they will continue arresting people not wearing masks as they continue to enforce lockdown restrictions, The Herald reports.

This was revealed by ZRP Spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi who said since the onset of the lockdown that have arrested close to 60 000 people for not wearing masks and not wearing them properly:

The enforcement of these health, safety and security measures is still paramount. Police have noted that some members of the public are no longer wearing face masks, observing social distancing guidelines and sanitising.

Covid-19 is real and the public should avoid being complacent and should cooperate with law enforcement agencies to curb the spread of the pandemic. So far we have arrested a total of 58 981 people for not wearing face masks and we will continue arresting them so that the law will take its course since these people are posing a risk to others and the society.

This comes a few days after ZRP also said they will be strict in enforcing lockdown restrictions in the following weeks following the resurgence of COVID-19 cases in some places including in neighboring South Africa.
