Narcity reached out to the provincial government to get some clarifications on what will land you a ticket. 

According to a release, anyone who is caught gathering with people outside of their household can be fined $750.

This includes seeing friends, family, or other people you don't live with both indoor and outdoors.

What else can people get fined for?

Some examples of tickets that have already been issued include organizing or attending house parties or travelling in the same car as people you don't live with.

However, the government is reminding residents that if they live alone, they can gather with one other household without getting fined. 

The government also told Narcity that you "must stay at least two metres apart from everyone else and wear a mask or face covering during permitted events such as a wedding, funeral or religious service, rite or ceremony." If you don't follow these rules, it could also land you a ticket. 

If you are caught hosting a party, you could also face a minimum $10,000 fine.  

Currently, police are able to ask residents for additional information if they believe they are attending a social gathering.
