This past week, the City conducted 4,584 inspections, issued 195 warnings and laid a total of 30 charges.

We do take the time to warn residents that aren’t following the physical distancing by-laws that are stressed,” said Brown.

This week, there were five house parties that resulted in 13 different charges, two gatherings in parking lots and eight charges for people who continued to use parks.

Now is not the time to be hosting a party at your house for friends,” stressed Brown. “We need people to be keeping their distance.”

Additionally, Brown stated that eight charges were laid for non-essential businesses that were still operating.

We really need to respect the provincial list of essential workers,” he said.
