Luxembourg police are continuing to monitor the public up and down the country to ensure sanitary measures are adhered to, even in sunny weather.

In the last week, around 100 checks were carried out each day, leading to 15 fines issued.

According to police, 90% of those charged were not wearing masks in circumstances where masks are compulsory. The remainder of the fines were issued to those who were not respecting safe social distancing.

Luxembourg authorities also issued a number of warnings to citizens who did not respect the closure of the beaches at Upper-Sûre Lake, as well to those whose private events exceeded the number of guests allowed.

Currently, just one bathing area is open in Luxembourg, and no more than six people are allowed to congregate in private homes. Physical distancing measures are still in place, and masks must be worn in public places such as supermarkets, DIY shops and so on.
