B.C. to provide update on how recent travel restrictions will be enforced

B.C.’s public safety minister is set to provide an update Friday morning about COVID-19 travel restrictions in the province.

Mike Farnworth is expected to give more information on enforcement related to the restrictions.

Last week the province announced fines of $575 for anyone heading outside of their health authorities for non-essential purposes.

The government has previously said it is looking at checkpoints, similar to what drivers would see over the holidays for drinking and driving.
