TALLINN - The East Prefecture of the Estonian Police and Border Guard Board expressed its satisfaction on Monday with the fact that most shoppers in their region adhere to valid regulations and wear a protective mask in stores. 

"During the holiday period, we continued checks of adherence to coronavirus restrictions in public transport, businesses and shopping centers. In total, we inspected 32 institutions and companies over four days," spokespeople for the prefecture said on social media.

"It's good to see that, although there were significantly more people in the shops than usual, the majority of people had their masks on properly and businesses are continuing to contribute to ensuring safety against the virus," they said. 

The officers conducting the checks noticed five people who had no mask at all or were wearing a mask improperly.

"We reminded them that a mask is still necessary to protect their own health and the health of others. In addition, we had to issue 12 verbal warnings about the wearing of masks, most of them to minors," the spokespeople said.
