REGINA — Police in Regina say they have given a resident a $2,800 ticket after officers found 15 people gathered inside a home.

A provincial public health order for COVID-19 prohibits residents from having guests in a home other than to provide services such as child care.

The Regina Police Service says it received a complaint Sunday about a large number of people at the home.

A 48-year-old man was ticketed for failing to comply with the public health order.

On Monday, officials reported 143 new COVID-19 infections. There were 183 people in hospital, 22 of them in intensive care.

The province's current health rules related to COVID-19 are set to expire Friday.
