RCMP issued a fine for $11,622.50 to the owner of a food truck after receiving a complaint that employees were not wearing masks.
Police in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia responded to a call yesterday afternoon, and the owner of the business advised that they refused to wear a mask because the public health restrictions are not “law.”
The business was charged for operating in contravention of mask requirements under the province's Health Protection Act.
Yarmouth is a small town on the southwest of the maritime province. Since the start of the pandemic, Nova Scotia has recorded 74 deaths from COVID-19.
