Girne Mayor Nidai Güngördü said:
“Official controls, which are vital in pandemic management, have been carried out uninterruptedly since the first day of the pandemic. Our aim in these controls is to control the elements that may be contamination risk for human health and to protect the health and safety of both tradesmen and all citizens. In addition to the continuation of daily life, it is imperative that all of us actively contribute to this process in order to maintain economic dynamism. It is for not closing once again in these difficult days we live. In order to keep the number of cases under control and to alleviate the burden of our healthcare professionals, it is essential that masks, social distance and hygiene rules are fulfilled by each individual. Since commercial enterprises have more responsibility, all necessary precautions should be taken. Criminal sanctions will continue to be imposed on businesses that do not work in accordance with the rules in order to prevent the sectors from closing.”
