A Gananoque business is facing charges for allegedly breaking COVID-19 restrictions over the holidays.
According to local police, in the early morning hours of Dec. 24, a licensed business was having an “after hours function with liquor.”
The region, Leeds, Grenville and Lanark, was under the province’s yellow COVID-19 status, which means businesses must stop serving alcohol at 11 p.m. and must be closed between midnight and 5 a.m.
Gananoque police officers attended the unidentified business and told the owner to shut the function down.
On Monday, police went to the owner’s home and fined them $875 under the province’s Reopening Ontario Act.View link »
