Police fined a nightclub in Adelaide for a $ 5,060 fine for violating the coronavirus restrictions after storming the venue and finding a packed dance floor.

The city’s popular nightclub said she would contest the fine and had already filed a formal complaint with the police, insistently.

“We made every effort to comply with the rules of social distance and density,” they said in a statement.
“We filled our usual dance floor with bar tables and chairs to show that we were doing our best.
“We are deeply disappointed at the lack of consistency between the police, especially in this confusing time.”
The nightclub said the sentence was “frustrating” as they “did not cause or spread the virus in this state at all.”
The South Australian police checked 111 locations in Adelaide over the weekend during a COVID-19 compliance blitz and found 10 had no COVIDSafe plans.

The Tequila Sunrise hostel on Waymouth Street was mugged by police on Friday night at 8:00 PM and was also fined $ 5,060 for violating the coronavirus guidelines.
“Upon arrival, police noted that the company did not have a COVID Safe Plan and was concerned that people would not physically distance themselves from one another,” said the police.
Investigators found that the hostel received four guests who had recently arrived from a COVID-19 hotspot in Victoria and isolated themselves at the property.
“Officers were concerned about their ability to quarantine with other customers and hired SA Health who moved the three men and a woman to a hotel on North Terrace to complete their self-quarantine.”
