Solicitor General Mike Farnworth is aligning the province's ticketing measures with the provincial health officer's orders, giving police and other provincial enforcement the ability to issue violation tickets for additional COVID-19 contraventions in the Vancouver Coastal Health and Fraser Health regions.

The new ticketing measures under the Emergency Program Act apply to party buses and limousines. The measures allow police and other enforcement officers to issue additional fines. People who operate or permit operation of perimeter-seating vehicles or perimeter-seating buses in contravention of the PHO's orders will be subject to a $2,000 fine. People taking part in a social gathering on a bus or limousine in these regions could face individual fines of $200.

All ticketing measures previously announced in August also remain in effect throughout the province.
