Lethbridge police say they are encouraged by the fact that no tickets or fines were needed to be issued at what was expected to be an anti-mask protest at a local business this past weekend.
Contingency plans were put in place and a visible police presence was established to limit the risk of unmasked protesters infringing on the safety and well-being of shoppers and staff. However, police say no disruptive behaviour was witnessed. Those not originally wearing masks either complied without incident or never entered the premises after the mandatory health measures surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic were explained to them.
Police continue to monitor the situation, saying enforcement of City of Lethbridge and provincial health measures will be provided where appropriate. Lethbridge Police thanks the community for its co-operation and compliance in working together to reduce the spread of the coronavirus.
