A nail salon has been fined for operating during the coronavirus shutdown.
The Alice Springs salon was fined on Tuesday for contravention of the emergency declaration on closed businesses after they were found operating against the Chief Health Officer's directions.
Under the NT Government's roadmap, it will be permitted to operate or attend a beauty therapy salon for (non facial) services, such as nails, massage and tanning from Friday.
The nail salon breach was one of two infringement notices issued by NT Police for failing to abide by coronavirus shutdown rules.
A 29-year-old Darwin woman was yesterday issued an infringement notice for failing to comply with quarantine requirements after leaving her designated place of quarantine almost immediately after being told of her requirements for quarantine.
A historical infringement notice has been added to the NT tally.
This relates to a 27-year-old man breaching his quarantine in Alice Springs back in April.
NT Police and Environmental Health Officers continue to undertake quarantine compliance checks to ensure people are completing their 14 days quarantine.
A total of 9852 compliance checks have now been completed and 51 fines issued.
NT Police are looking forward to seeing businesses reopen and staff with smiles on their faces as pubs and restaurants open their doors from midday tomorrow.
Physical distancing remains one of the key weapons in the fight against the COVID-10 virus and venues have worked hard on plans to welcome patrons and ensure high levels of hygiene.
Police will have a visible presence across the Territory to ensure everyone is enjoying themselves safely.
Reducing road related harm is still a key priority for NT Police and with the further relaxing of restrictions from tomorrow, there will be an increase in Random Breath Testing and Random Drug Testing activities to ensure a safer Northern Territory.
Commissioner Jamie Chalker said, "Police will be conducting high visibility patrols throughout the weekend. With the reopening of licensed premises, our approach will be to make sure Territorians don't drink and drive. If you plan to head out, make your plans to get home safely.
"Additionally, police will be present out at Litchfield to make sure Territorians are on their best behaviour. We want it to be a place that people want to take their families and we will certainly be addressing any untoward behaviour.
"We have got ourselves an incredibly rare and privileged position in the Territory that we are able to get back to some sense of normality. Going into this weekend, I urge Territorians to work together and continue their efforts in adhering to the COVID-19 restrictions that remain in place."
