Superintendent Scott Tanner, the New England District Police Commander, said police would continue to work with their CVD-19 safety plan and provide advice and guidance.
Superintendent Tanner said, “While it is the responsibility of licensed premises to ensure that they comply with public health orders, the public must understand that they have put these premises at risk and may be liable.”
“They’ve put this business at risk of making a living, and if people don’t think it will happen in our region, they should just look at other regional areas that are being affected.”
“People need to be held accountable for their actions,” he said.
“The parties that have put this licensed premises at risk are young people whose behavior has been a display of recklessness, and if they think they are responsible for the CWID-19 or public health order, they may think again,” he said.
“Up to this point we have been trying to work with the community and on licensed premises, but obviously it has fallen on deaf ears so we have no choice but to enforce these public health orders and we will continue to do so.”
