A further 14 Covid-19 non-compliance fines were issued in Donegal this week, gardaí have confirmed.
A total of 841 fines have been handed down to people in Donegal during the pandemic.
The majority of fines relate to non-essential travel. With this restriction lifted since mid-April, gardaí say they are continuing to find groups gathering (house parties, social gatherings, exercise etc.) in breach of regulations nationwide.
Speaking ahead of the Bank Holiday weekend, Deputy Commissioner, Policing and Security, Anne Marie McMahon said: “Thanks to the sacrifice of so many people, there is a lot to be positive about. However, COVID-19 is still here. People are still dying from COVID-19 and getting seriously ill. So, when you are enjoying the outdoors this weekend please maintain the good practices that have got us to this position. Please do not gather in large groups. Please maintain social distancing. Please do not hold or attend house parties. Please remember to wash your hands regularly.”
An Garda Síochána continues to appeal to any person who may have been the victim of an incident of sexual or domestic crime irrespective of whether you may have been on breach of any public health regulations, for instance by attending a house party, An Garda Síochána is here to assist and support you, please report all such incidents.
