Canada to Start Enforcing Mandatory Quarantines for Returning Travellers

Coronavirus Covid-19 Update

The Government of Canada is going to start enforcing the 14-day quarantines on travellers returning to Canada in effort to try to limit the spread of COVID-19.

Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland says this mandatory isolation is required to help to flatten the curve of the growth of the COVID-19 virus in Canada.

These formal quarantines come with the potential for fines or even arrests for people violating them.

There have been reports of people arriving back in Canada and then going shopping and in extreme cases simply ignoring the self-isolation.
