Residents of Canada’s most populous city caught walking within two metres of anyone in a public park or square face a fine of as much as 5,000 Canadian dollars (£2,850, $3,500).
Toronto’s mayor John Tory said the public has been warned many times and the willful disobedience needs to stop amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Today I have signed an emergency order to impose a two-metre physical distancing rule in all city parks and public squares to further drive home the message that people have to keep their distance from each other to avoid spreading #COVID19 further in our city. pic.twitter.com/1QBjSBltkO
