There is a hefty fine for unvaccinated individuals who seek to be served within a restaurant. This fine will also apply to the restaurant for allowing unvaccinated people to be seated.
Cabinet says a hotline for reporting unvaccinated people entering bars, clubs and restaurants will be established
Eight additional CBH Inspectors, armed with printed tickets, will be on the look-out for those who may attempt to break the law.
Vigilance by the police is also promised.
