They are seen in the video below stopping shoppers and requiring that they show proof of vaccination before being allowed to carry on.

Police are also carrying out roadside spot checks and demanding drivers provide their vaccine passports.
Those who have not received the Covid vaccine are prohibited from leaving their homes. If someone is caught breaking lockdown restrictions, they can be fined from $566 to $4077.
