Four men have been charged for holding a gathering with more than 10 people in attendance in Guelph.
City officials say bylaw officers went to a home shortly after midnight on Thursday for a noise complaint. They say there were at least 10 people in the home for a party. Indoor gatherings aren't allowed with anyone outside of your household under the province’s current stay-at-home order.
Four men lived at the home and have each been charged with nuisance, failing to comply with the Reopening Ontario Act and obstructing an officer. They each received fines totalling $2,625.
Scott Green, Guelph's manger of public safety, said bylaw officers typically aim for education first. But, this wasn't their first time visiting this address.
"We have a history with that location, so there was no education last night," Green said. "We went strictly to enforcement."
Ontario's current public health restrictions remain in place until at least Feb. 11.
