Full Cup Cafe In Bobcaygeon Closes After “Comply Or Close” Order From Health Unit

KAWARTHA LAKES-The Full Cup Cafe in Bobcaygeon has closed its doors indefinitely after receiving an order from the Haliburton Kawartha Pine Ridge District Health Unit.(HKPR)

The health unit says they issued a Section 22 order to the business on December 22.

“On December 22, 2021, the Health Unit served the owner/operator of the Full Cup Café in Bobcaygeon with a ‘comply or close’ order, under Section 22 of the Health Protection and Promotion Act. The order was served after the business was cited for multiple violations of current COVID-19 restrictions under the Reopening Ontario Act.” HKPR’s Health Protection Manager, Richard Ovcharovich told Kawartha 411 News. 

Ovcharovich says it’s the Health Unit’s understanding that the business has decided to voluntarily close after receiving the order. 

A sign on the door says “Regardless of our efforts for freedom and equality, and although we view and believe that the requirement of asking our patrons for vaccine passports to be unlawful, we have decided to close the establishment known as the Full Cup Cafe until further notice.”

The Health Unit says it follows a progressive enforcement approach that includes the 4 Es: 

  • Engage with individuals/businesses who are not complying. 
  • Explain why the Health Unit is responding. 
  • Educate individuals/businesses on the rules and regulations. 
  • Enforce when non-compliance is confirmed following education. 

This is the second restaurant within the HKPR region to be closed recently. The 50 Diner in Minden was ordered closed on December 14th after allegedly failing to comply with provincial COVID-19 health regulations.
