The advisory panel in Canada said the hotel quarantine system is flawed. The federal government has announced that air passengers refusing to quarantine in a designated hotel will be subjected to a $5,000 fine. This will start on Friday and includes individuals declining the required COVID-19 test as well.
The original requirements were made on February 22, which made it mandatory for air passengers entering Canada to take a COVID-19 test and stay in a hotel for 3 days. The rest of their 14-day quarantine can be spent at home if the test results come back negative. The passengers have to pay for the hotel stay which can be up to $2,000.
The passengers must also take a COVID-19 test before entering Canada. The increase in the fine comes after the government advisory table said Ottawa show get rid of the hotel quarantine requirements and let people organize their own quarantine.
