Police patrolling downtown neighbourhoods of New Westminster recently came across an illegal nightclub with dozens of guests partying without masks.
The incident happened on Jan. 29 just before midnight in the 400-block of Front Street.
Inside a building, police say there were an estimated 150 guests inside – some dancing on a dance floor and most not wearing masks nor social distancing.
“We want everyone to know that public health orders are still in place and still being enforced. These orders are in place to protect public health,” said Sgt. Sanjay Kumar.
Officers issued $575 in fines to the event organier under the COVID Related Measures Act.
