Vaughan restaurant charged again for COVID-19 violations
July 29, 2021

Regalz Kitchen and Bar in Vaughan received one of just two charges in York Region last week for individuals or businesses violating COVID-19 restrictions.

The restaurant at 4000 Steeles Ave. West was charged by Vaughan bylaw officers for failing to limit the number of patrons to ensure physical distancing of two meters could be maintained. 

This is not the first time the business has been fined for not following reopening rules.

In mid-June, the restaurant was charged for having more than four people at a table and, later in the month, the eatery was charged for failing to ensure that no indoor or buffet style service was provided.  

York Region's COVID-19 enforcement task force laid two charges for businesses and individuals violating provincial measures, with 357 inspections conducted from July 19 to 25, according to Patrick Casey, director of corporate communications for the region.

The other charge was issued by York Region Transit.

The task force also completed 116 education activities, 21 of which were in Newmarket.
