In the week of October 17th, three fines were handed out by SHA public health inspectors in Lloydminster.
Two individual fines of $2,800 for failure to mask and one summary offense ticket to Manhattan Inn Ltd. of $14,000 for failure to screen for proof of vaccination or negative test.
The fines were issued under the Public Health order and come as residents are being reminded by the province that these are lawful requirements made under legislative and regulatory authority.
The province is also reminding that where public masking or proof of vaccination or negative test requirements are placed on a business or venue, and the business intends to allow access to their facility without proof of either vaccination or testing, the business will be in violation of the public health order and could be subject to a summary offence ticket.
Under the Health Information and Privacy Act, the Ministry of Health cannot disclose the names of individuals who have received fines.
