REGINA -- A Regina man received a ticket for failing to self-isolate while confirmed to have COVID-19.
According to a news release from RPS, officers responded to a domestic call just after midnight on Feb. 11. The man, who had testing positive for COVID-19, was involved in an argument.
Police in personal protective equipment had to escort the man, 47, to his home in the 1200 block of McTavish St. to self-isolate.
“The male was extremely agitated and appeared to be intoxicated so the officers did not serve a ticket to him at that time,” RPS said.
Police returned on Thursday to issue the man the ticket for $2,800
This is the 25th ticket related to COVID-19 issued in Regina.
