The Estevan Police Service (EPS) has charged an Estevan man for a Public Health Order violation.
As a result of an incident Sunday, the EPS has charged a 43-year-old Estevan resident under the Public Health Act and the Trespass to Property Act.
Officers were called to a local business around noon on Sunday to a report of a person refusing to comply with the current Public Health Order relating to face coverings.
The subject refused wear a mask, even when asked to do so by employees. He also refused when the request was made by police, after they were called to the scene. When asked to leave the store prior to police arriving, he also failed to do so.
A fine of $2,800, which includes a victim surcharge, was issued for the health violation. He was also charged for trespassing and if convicted for this offence, could face a maximum penalty of $2,000.
Police are reminding the public of the importance of following guidelines imposed by Public Health.
