GARDAI has started visiting supermarkets and other retail stores across the country to check that they are complying with the new Covid-19 rules.
Tanaiste Leo Varadkar said mixed retail stores should only sell products that are considered “essential”.
Speaking about RTEs yesterday this week, he said, “For example, if you have a supermarket or a large store that sells groceries and clothes, you have to separate the clothes, not sell them.
“Work clothes are fine, but general clothing is not.”
When Gardai tried to enforce the rules, they visited various retail stores over the weekend on bank holidays.
Cops shared pictures on their social media and visited an unnamed Dunnes store that complied with the measures.
They wrote: “Gardaí carries out compliance tests in retail stores to support the current Covid-19 risk level 5 measures.
“Under the current measures, retail establishments can only remain open for essential retail purposes.
“Together we can all make a difference.”
“Follow the rules”
Gardai in Killarney, Kerry, meanwhile, also shared pictures as they checked into Tesco, Marks and Spencer and Mr Price outlets yesterday that were in compliance with measures.
They wrote, “Compliance audits in retail stores in Killarney yesterday.
“Consistent with the Level 5 restrictions, retail establishments can only remain open for essential retail purposes.”
The Tanaiste also said of the rules, “We tell retailers that you must obey the rules and that you must also obey the spirit of the rules.
“So if you’re a mixed retailer – and there are a lot of mixed retailers – you should segregate your inventory and only sell the items that are important.
