Sarnia enforcement officers laid a fourth charge for a violation of the emergency orders on Saturday.

Individuals were charged for a gathering of more then five people not from the same household, the city’s Primary Control Group said.

“We appreciate and understand the difficult sacrifices that are being asked of the community,” a release said.

“We want to take this time to thank all community members who are doing their part to slow and stop the spread of COVID-19 within our community.”
