The Cobourg Police Service issued one ticket in the Town of Cobourg in relation to
the ongoing gathering downtown Cobourg.
On the afternoon of Saturday, May 15, 2021, members of the Cobourg Police Service (CPS) attended Victoria Hall in the Town of Cobourg. Cobourg Police spoke with a small group that was gathered, requesting they disperse and comply with the current Stay-At-Home order. All but one attendee complied with the request.
As a result, one individual was issued Provincial Offence Notices under the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act. Cobourg Police and Town of Cobourg By-law engaged with Farmers Market organizers to address the large number of people in attendance. CPS will continue to work with the Town of Cobourg By-law and the Haliburton Kawartha Pine Ridge Health Unit to ensure restrictions and health regulations are adhered to.
The Cobourg Police Service supports all measures necessary to prevent and limit the spread of COVID-19 and variants in our community and will continue to work with local public health, municipal and regional officials to ensure compliance.
In partnership with the Town of Cobourg By-law, Cobourg Police Service will continue to be proactive and complaint-driven in response to the increased measures. Residents who have a concern or complaint regarding possible violations of the current order are encouraged to call the Cobourg Police Service at (905) 372-6821.
