Canada Gave Out $17,000 In Fines To 2 Travellers Who Lied About COVID-19
As a result of Canada's air travel restrictions, the government has issued $17,000 worth of fines to two people who flew into the country.
One person was fined $10,000 and the other, $7,000 for the misleading results and for making a false declaration about their health.
Both of those people boarded a flight to Canada from Mexico on January 23.
They did that while knowing that they tested positive for COVID-19 just a few days before their flight took off.
Under the interim order that has put restrictions in place for air travel, passengers are not only required to show proof of a negative test but are also prohibited from knowingly providing false or misleading results.
As of February 22, travellers arriving in Canada by both air and by land have to take a COVID-19 test upon arrival as well.
