Mississauga ticketing for gathering in parks to home hair salons and more

Over the past week, the City of Mississauga laid nine charges against people and businesses who allegedly violated COVID-19 related restrictions.
As of now, the entire province is under a stay-at-home order and outdoor gatherings of more than five people (unless those people live in the same household) are not permitted. Private indoor gatherings of any kind are prohibited and multiple businesses, such as gyms, salons and non-essential retailers, are not allowed to operate (although retailers can offer delivery or curbside pickup).
According to the city’s latest enforcement report, two businesses received $880 fines over the past week and seven tickets were issued in parks.
The enforcement report says that on April 6, a banquet hall was ticketed.
On April 10, a ticket was issued after someone was allegedly found to be operating a hair alone inside a private residence.
On April 11, two tickets were issued in response to an alleged “large gathering” at Huron Park. That same day, three tickets were issued at Credit Village Marina and two tickets were issued at JJ Plaus Park to people who were allegedly occupying the parks after closing time.
The report also says five tickets were issued for noisy vehicles that were gathered together.
According to the report, the city has issued 930 tickets for COVID-19-related violations since the pandemic began in March 2020.insauga's Editorial Standards and Policies
