On Jan 10, police attended a residence in Lindsay in response to a complaint received that multiple people who did not live there were in attendance, not abiding by the COVID-19 safety regulations.
Officers attended and located multiple individuals inside who did not reside at the residence.
Three people were issued Provincial Offence Notices under section 10(1)(a) of the Reopening Ontario Act which carries a set fine of $880.
The Kawartha Lakes Police Service is strongly advising members of the public to educate themselves on current public health directives and COVID-19 enforcement measures, including those related to illegal gathers and associated fines.
“We must all follow the rules, it is only through compliance and cooperation that we can slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus,” says a media release.
