Mayor Bonnie Crombie warns residents who don't adhere to social distancing instructions will be fined
Mississauga has been cracking down on residents violating social distancing instructions.
According to Mayor Bonnie Crombie, last weekend, the City issued eight tickets for COVID-19-related offences. Further, police officers prevented 1,600 cars from entering public parks, which have since been closed to help prevent the spread of the virus.
Crombie said the increase in tickets was related to the fact many residents have been ignoring instructions from the City by getting together with their families, and gathering in public spaces that have been closed.
Further, according to Crombie, 30 police officers were patrolling the City this past weekend to prevent people from gathering in public spaces, and educating them on how social distancing rules and practices that can help prevent the spread of the virus.
This past weekend alone, officers stopped and educated nearly 2,600 people.
“These people’s poor choices are putting their health, and the health of their family and friends and countless others on the line,” Crombie said in a press conference.
“Please do yours by staying at home and respecting the rules when you are out,” she added.
