Officials reported 15 violations on Saturday, despite the increased police presence.
One shop was therefore closed.
According to a spokesperson, it was “a difficult night”.
Court ruled the measures were necessary and appropriate to safeguard the public’s health from the disease.
The tightened regulations were added to the restrictions on fundamental freedoms. In both cities, the occupancy rate for acute care beds was 21 percent.
