Halifax Regional Police is providing an update in relation to violations under the Nova Scotia Emergency Management Act and Health Protection Act related to COVID-19 directives.
Since our last report on Monday, HRP has not issued a ticket for violations of the Health Protection Act and Emergency Management Act. We thank the public for all their efforts in complying with the regulations this week. HRP has had to make adjustments like many others in the exceptional time. As such there have been some delays in data entry processes. We have retallied our total COVID related summary offence tickets since the Province declared a state of emergency and to date it is 183. The majority of these were in relation to being in prohibited areas under the Emergency Management Act. Since the declaration of the state of emergency, HRP has responded to a total of 1,544 COVID-19 related calls.
We advise members of the public to continue to educate themselves on the directives and Covid-19 enforcement measures at https://novascotia.ca/coronavirus/. We appreciate the efforts of everyone who is helping to reduce the spread of COVID-19. More information on what you can do to help curb the spread of COVID-19 is available on the Halifax Regional Police website.Let’s work together to curb the spread of the virus.
