Police set up 300 checkpoints across country to enforce lockdown

Police have set up some 300 checkpoints across the country to enforce the national lockdown, which came into effect at 5 p.m. this evening.

The checkpoints, placed mainly at the entrance and exits of cities and towns, will be checking cars from 7 p.m. to midnight, Channel 12 news reports.

The channel says, however, that police have been instructed to “implement light enforcement” of certain aspects of the lockdown, with a focus on preventing gatherings and New Year parties.
