“While most residents are giving a heroic and sustained effort to complying with these orders, there are some who still ignore these rules, potentially putting themselves and others at risk for contracting COVID-19,” Regina police said in a press release Thursday.

“Police have monitored a number of large gatherings organized in protest of the Public Health Orders and, up to now, have focused on the organizers of these events for enforcement.”

Under current health orders, household bubbles are limited to immediate households only throughout all of Saskatchewan. Outdoor gatherings are limited to a maximum of 10 people.
