This past week, three tickets were issued to residents and business owners in Mississauga in relation to alleged violations of COVID-19-related restrictions.
Two tickets were issued to citizens for allegedly having illegal gatherings—one on Friday (June 18) for an illegal gathering at a private residence, and one on Saturday for an illegal gathering at a hotel room.
Additionally, an $880 ticket was issued to a restaurant owner, while a Part 3 ticket, which includes a summons, was issued to a separate restaurant owner.
Part 3 charges are more significant than regular tickets and come with a minimum fine of $10,000.
The restaurants were ticked for allegedly being overcapacity, and serving large groups of people seated together, not recording patron contact information, and not enforcing proper distancing requirements.
A city spokesperson also said that dancing was observed at a restaurant.
Further, four notices of compliance were issued this past week for by-law-related violations.
As far as complaints go, the city’s enforcement report indicates that the municipality received 29 complaints about businesses and 23 complaints about private gatherings. Six complaints about parks, transit and city facilities were issued, bringing the total of public complaints for the week to 58.insauga's Editorial Standards and Policies
