Ford Says COVID-19 Enforcement Is Increasing & Anyone Not Following Rules Will Be Fined
Doug Ford is warning that residents won't get away with not following Ontario's COVID-19 rules.
Bad actors who are caught, they will get fined.
Under this new order, everyone must remain at home unless leaving for essential trips.
Ford states that when it comes to the enforcement of these new rules, the government will be cracking down.
"Enforcement and inspections will increase," Ford warned.
He also hints that provincial and local police and well as by-law officers will all be working together to catch "bad actors."
"They will have powers to disperse people and issue tickets," the premier continues.
A press release from the government also states that these officers will have the power to "disperse people who are gathering, regardless whether a premise has been closed or remains open such as a park or house."
Officers will also be cracking down on fining those who are caught not wearing masks indoors.
