“Every citizen is obliged to wear a protective mask from the moment he leaves his home starting on Thursday. This measure is in accordance with the instructions issued by the health authorities,” has said the General Director of the State Police, Ardi Veliu. In a statement to the media on Monday, he called on citizens to respect the wearing of the mask in the open areas given the fact that the cases of citizens infected with Covid-19 have increased slightly.
Health authorities reported on Monday that there were 4 victims and 171 new cases out of 952 tests performed for COVID19 during the last 24 hours.
“The State Police will engage with all its capacities, along with other structures, to guarantee the implementation of the measures set by the health authorities,” Veliu said.
“In any case of finding citizens evading legal obligations, the State Police will respond in accordance with the law and its functional duties,” said the top police. /argumentum.al
