COVID-19 - Enforcement & Closures
Enforcement of Mandatory Closures & Restrictions
The Government of Ontario is in Stage 2 of reopening the Province. Stage 2 takes a regional approach to opening more businesses and services, as well as community, recreational and outdoor spaces, while emphasizing public health advice and personal responsibility. Gatherings of more than ten (10) people are not permitted.
Restrictions may be expanded or modified by the Government of Ontario. Check their website for the latest updates and detailed information.
Fines can be issued for non-compliance. Enforcement of the provincial order is jointly through the Town's municipal law enforcement & Niagara Regional Police Service.
Failing to comply with an emergency order carries a fine of $750 per offence, and up to $1,000 for obstructing those attempting to carry out their duties under the Act.
