The University of Guelph campus police are reporting they had to deal with several large outdoor gatherings this weekend that included aggressive physical behaviour.

There are unconfirmed reports that at one of those parties cans were thrown at campus police and a campus police vehicle was damaged.

The school's Campus Safety Office issued a safety bulletin regarding the incidents.

"The Campus Safety Office was present at many locations on campus where large groups have congregated outdoors and have exceeded the allowable COVID-19 limit on the campus of 25 persons." the report reads.

"There have been incidents of aggressive physical behaviour that resulted in several investigations by the CSO where charges are pending. If you choose to socialize, ensure that you comply with all COVID-19 health and safety requirements, including wearing a mask and socially distancing. Avoid socializing in large groups and with people, you do not know. A reminder that you can download the free safety app “SafeGryphon” which has many features that will help keep you and our campus safe."

Last weekend a gathering of roughly 750 people happened on campus.
