A total of 163 trading venues had been inspected by May 8 in Lithuania, Giedrius Surplys, the head of the group for informing the public on the coronavirus, said on Monday. Various grocery stores made three quarters of them. Major supermarkets made a fifth of the total and marketplaces accounted for the remaining 7 percent.
"Violations were recorded at a quarter of trading venues, mainly small grocery stores, as much as 80 percent of them. There were violations at 15 percent of marketplaces. As of supermarkets, the SFVS found they are quite disciplines as violations were discovered at only 5 percent of them," he said.
Geographically, the majority of violations were recorded in the areas of Marijampole and Alytus.
"In most cases, the violations included the failure to check staff members; temperature before opening the store. Also, there was no information at the entry to the trading venue, attracting visitors' attention to the need for personal hygiene," Surplys said.
Meanwhile, police officers produced 42 protocols on quarantine violations over the past weekend.
