WOMAN FACING CHARGE OVER SUNDAY CHURCH SERVICE
Police say they've charged a 48-year-old woman after a church gathering that violated COVID-19 rules in Woodstock, Ont., on Sunday. She's being charged under Ontario's Reopening Act for organizing an event that exceeded the number of permitted people. All of Ontario moved into lockdown on Saturday to try to slow the spread of COVID-19. Under those provincial restrictions, religious services are limited to 10 or fewer people both indoors and outdoors. Police say that well over 10 people were inside the place of worship on Sunday, with many not physically distancing or wearing masks. Other Ontarians are facing similar charges from over the weekend stemming from church services in Wheatley and Aylmer.
