During the evening of April 8, 2021, members from the Grenville County Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) attended a large gathering outside of a business on Clothier Street East, in the Municipality of North Grenville.
The OPP received numerous requests to attend the area, and it is believed that approximately 200 people were in attendance. The OPP attended the area with a primary focus on maintaining public safety.
The local public health unit, Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario, and North Grenville By-Law Services also attended.
The OPP continues to support efforts to limit the transmission of COVID-19, including the government-mandated shutdown and the Stay at Home Order. Actions are based on public health advice from the Government’s health table as well as the Chief Medical Officer of Health.
The OPP will continue to support the efforts of our by-law officers and local public health units.
The incident is still under investigation.
