Our preferred approach is to educate and seek voluntary compliance with the legal measures that have been put in place.

The priority of the Lethbridge Police Service is to protect the whole community, and they will take the appropriate enforcement actions when people in our community are put in harm’s way. 

While there are monetary penalties for those who contravene a public health order, criminal charges including causing a disturbance may be considered, if circumstances warrant.

If residents are concerned about anti-masking and other public health order issues, they can 

- contact the Police non-emergency number at 403-328-4444 

or 

- submit a public health complaint through the Alberta Health Services public health contact form at https://ephisahs.microsoftcrmportals.com/create-case/
