2021-01-05 15:29 PST

To ensure our community is informed about enforcement actions through the COVID-19 pandemic, Burnaby RCMP is releasing monthly updates summarizing actions taken under the COVID-19 Related Measures Act. (CRMA)

On December 20, officers responded to a complaint of a party in the 7300-block of Edmonds Street. There were two people in the residence that did not live there, with one of them being in contravention of the CRMA. The two non-residents eventually left while police were still on scene. Police were advised approximately 20 minutes later that the two non-resident guests had returned. Police re-attended and a ticket was issued.

On December 28, officers responded to a complaint that four men were in a business in the 7300-block of Edmonds Street and were refusing to wear masks. One of the men initially refused to cooperate or even provide identification to police. This man was eventually issued a ticket and was asked by staff not to return to their business.

Regular patrols are continuing through businesses by Burnaby RCMP’s COVID Compliance Enforcement Team (CCET) and City of Burnaby bylaw officers.

Burnaby RCMP first responders and CCET responded to a combined total of 58 complaints and issued 2 CRMA tickets in the month of December. This does not include the numerous restaurant, lounge and business checks conducted by CCET.
