The party took place Sunday night around 10. When officers arrived, they found around 30 people inside a house and many were drunk. A Regina police officer tweeted about the incident and said in the tweet:
The service said many people are not getting the message that they should not be gathering at all during the COVID-19 pandemic as the virus spreads quickly and easily.
“People are getting hung up on the numbers, how many can I gather with? What we want people to understand is the intent behind that messaging,” Les Parker with the Regina Police Service said. “We want people to limit their gatherings, go to the grocery store once a week when need be and just stay home until we can figure this out.”
