Quebec will not send police into homes without a warrant to break up house parties or private gatherings that don’t respect COVID-19 rules.

Public Security Minister Genevieve Guilbault said today the province is not looking at giving police such powers at this time.

On Tuesday, Quebec Health Minister Christian Dube said the government had not ruled out allowing police to intervene without a warrant, but it would be a last resort.

The province is into a second wave of COVID-19 cases with much of the transmission in the community being driven by private events and gatherings.
