Lindsay resident faces fine for allegedly failing to quarantine

A Lindsay resident is facing a fine after allegedly failing to quarantine after returning to Canada from another country.

According to the Kawartha Lakes Police Service, the Public Health Agency of Canada requested that officers complete a quarantine compliancy check at a residence in Lindsay on Oct. 3.

“Officers were informed that a Lindsay resident had been ordered to remain inside their home, in quarantine for 14 days, after recently returning to Canada from a foreign country.

“When officers attended the home, they learned that the resident was away, visiting another community and not abiding by the quarantine order.”

Officers reportedly returned to the residence on Wednesday (Oct. 14) and issued the person a Provincial Offence Notice under the Quarantine Act.

{Upon conviction, the charge carries a fine of $1,130,” the media release reads.

“This is the first time the Kawartha Lakes Police Service has issued a charge under the authority of the Quarantine Act.”
