Alberta RCMP say they have handed out seven tickets to American tourists who violated public health rules in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Corporal Deanna Fontaine says the U.S. citizens were either reported by others or noticed by police last week.
Six of the 12-hundred dollar tickets were issued to travellers who had stopped in Banff National Park for long hikes near Lake Louise.
The Canada - U.S. border is closed to all non-essential travel until at least July 21st, but some Americans have gotten through by saying they were travelling to Alaska.
People heading to Alaska travelling through the Yukon have 24 hours to get there, and are being asked to avoid going into Whitehorse.
The U.S. has one of the highest rates of Covid-19 in the world.
In nearby Haines, Alaska, there are two confirmed cases. One person has recovered.
