Police say this information was released after a discussion with Saskatchewan Public Health.
“Typically, a police service would not give out health information, but it has been deemed necessary to confirm the individual’s COVID-19-positive status in this case, given the circumstances we all face with the COVID-19 pandemic,” Regina police said in a news release.
The 23-year-old woman received the ticket on Monday. This was the first ticket handed out by Regina police for violating the order.
