Members of the COVID-19 special enforcement teams came to assist, and it was discovered that around 150 people "who were not wearing masks were found partying" in the building, police stated.

The statement says that in addition to seizing $13,000 worth of alcohol from the party, 24 people were also charged under the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act (EMCPA).

While most of the people at the gathering dispersed and left the scene, police say that they are still working to identify those in attendance.

In the first week that Toronto Police's special enforcement teams went into action, hundreds of charges linked to illegal indoor gatherings were laid.
