BARRIE, ONT. -- Police charged eight individuals visiting Gravenhurst from the greater Toronto area for breaking the provincial stay-at-home order.

A member of the public called the OPP and directed them to a cottage on Saturday night, where police found the group.

Each of the charged now faces $750 fines.

The current restrictions relating to the stay-at-home order under the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act (EMCPA) prohibit any gatherings.
