Residents are being reminded again that, if they want to avoid paying a nasty fine, they’ll have to skip the big social gatherings for now.

According to Mayor Bonnie Crombie, bylaw officers have been issuing heavy fines at various social gatherings and events in Mississauga during the weekend.

“Our bylaw officers have been out in full force and unfortunately had to issue some pretty big tickets at house parties, private wedding receptions and restaurants/lounges,” said Crombie.

“This can’t keep happening if we want to beat this virus and keep our economy running.”

On Saturday, the province announced that it was rolling back the limits for how many people are able to attend private social gatherings (10 indoors and 25 outdoors) across all of Ontario.

The province says it’s also looking at issuing minimum fines of $10,000 to event organizers whose events exceed these limits.
