Police will become stricter to enforce new rules in stores

In the first days after the introduction of new trade rules, the police will mainly issue warnings to commercial enterprises about non-compliance, but then control measures will be tightened, said the head of the Main Police Department of the State Police Normund Krapsis.

According to him, in the first two days after the introduction of the rules, police resources were concentrated, and inspections were carried out relatively often. 1268 inspections were carried out, comments were made in 225 cases, 19 cases were initiated. In most cases, violations were related to non-use or misuse of masks and non-observance of distance. Press.lv portal.

“Punishment is not an end in itself. The state police, like most of the population, wants the requirements to be met and there is no epidemiological risk,” said Krapsis, urging trade enterprises not to postpone the introduction of the necessary requirements.

If the store does not have an internal control system, the police may decide to close it for up to seven days. Krapsis expressed the hope that there will be no real incidents of this kind. He also clarified that the store, and not the entire shopping center, may be closed for up to seven days.

The Consumer Rights Protection Center also has the right to monitor compliance with the new requirements.

Among other measures, merchants are prohibited from organizing and promoting special offers of less than seven days in length that could induce people to go to the store immediately and create a congestion risk. According to the director of the CPPP Baiba Vitolini, the center will monitor whether this norm is not violated. Special offers may be for less than seven days, but information about them should not be disseminated outside the store.
