Last weekend, Quebec banned gatherings of two or more people, and gave police the power to break up any gatherings. The measures are aimed at slowing the spread of COVID-19.

Gatineau police say fines for violating the new ban on gatherings can range from $1,000 to $6,000. The city's tip line for anyone wishing to report a gathering, party or meeting is 819-246-0222.
