An adult massage parlour in Melbourne’s southeast has been fined almost $10,000 for breaching rules designed to slow the spread of coronavirus.

Officers from Victoria Police’s sex industry coordination unit visited the Frankston massage parlour on Tuesday and “observed non-essential services being undertaken”.

They fined the business owner $9913, while a female employee and a male customer were also fined $1652 each.

About 500 police officers are on the beat daily, conducting spot checks to make sure people who have returned from overseas or tested positive to COVID-19 are self-isolating.

Police are also enforcing bans on indoor and outdoor gatherings at non-essential venues and businesses.

In the past 24 hours, six other fines were issued for breaching the directive to stay at home without a valid reason.

Police have conducted 9208 spot checks since March 21.
