The Manitoba government has provided an update on ongoing enforcement efforts to protect Manitobans from the spread of COVID-19.

Manitoba Premier Brian Pallister says despite the strictest health orders in the country some Manitobans are going against the spirit of those rules affecting public safety. He reported in all of Manitoba last week 95 tickets had to be issued and that’s roughly ten times the number of tickets that was handed out at the start of the month.  He added looking back at last week the combined total of fines was over 125 thousand dollars but it’s not about the money it’s about preventing situations that hurt people.

The fines include nine 5,000 dollar tickets to business, and 55 - 1296 dollar tickets to individuals. Three band bylaw tickets were also issued by the Manitoba First Nations Police Service.

Last week, a specific fine of 298 dollars was put in place for not wearing a mask in indoor public places as required under current public health orders. Since that time 28 tickets have been issued for the offence.

A total of 126,082 dollars in fines were issued last week, up from 49,992 dollars the week prior.
