Halifax Regional Police have handed out four more tickets under the Health Protection Act.

The first $1,000 ticket went to a Bedford restaurant delivery driver on Friday night. Police say the driver didn't wear a mask while taking orders to an apartment building. They did not identify the restaurant.

"The provincial regulations require everyone to a wear a mask that covers their nose and mouth while present in a public place," police said in a news release.

The other three $1,000 tickets were issued early Sunday morning.

"Police received a report of a social gathering at a residence in Halifax that was exceeding the provincially mandated gathering limits," HRP said.

The current gathering limit for a household is capped at 10, which includes the people who live there.

"We strongly advise members of the public to educate and re-educate themselves on these public health directives and COVID-19 enforcement measures, including, those related to illegal gatherings and associated fines," police urged.
