Number of issued COVID-19 tickets in Mississauga down from earlier this year
A group of 20 allegedly playing soccer in a restricted area in the Paramount Sportsplex fields last Saturday were issued a $360 ticket by Mississauga enforcement officers, but that seems to be a rarer and rarer occurrence in the city of late.
A City of Mississauga enforcement report shows the number of COVID-19 tickets being handed out is down from earlier this year.
Just two rule violation tickets were issued between the week of March 15 to March 21. That’s down a fair bit from the 25 that were written near the end of February, according to a city enforcement report.
The total of notices of contravention issued were also down from the previous week. There were 15 of the warnings to change behaviour handed out, down from 21 issued March 15-21.
The report notes a total of 886 COVID-19 related tickets and fines have been handed out in Mississauga between March 30,2020 and March 21, 2021.
Currently in the grey zone, outdoor social gatherings in the city are capped at 10 people. While indoor gatherings at restaurants in Mississauga aren’t allowed, starting March 20 they will be able to serve food to customers on patios under Ontario’s modified grey-zone rules.
