This is contained in the Coronavirus (Covid-19) Regulations of 2020 that were tabled and adopted by Parliament on Friday.
The Regulations were created to ensure that security forces and courts have an instrument to use when implementing a 20-day lockdown that began on Friday.
Among the offences that are listed is refusal to go on quarantine, spreading false information, each of which carries a sentence of two years in prison or a fine of US$6 700.
Companies have also been warned against inflating prices of essential goods and defying orders related with suspending liquor business. Failure to comply will lead to them paying a fine of US$660 000.
