One Ontario man just received a hefty fine after not self-isolating when getting back from his travels.
According to police, a 41-year-old man returned to Canada on July 10, 2020, at Pearson Airport. He failed to follow Ontario's self-isolation rules, which resulted in a $1,130 fine.
It is certainly unfortunate and disheartening that anyone would place themselves and more importantly others at risk by not following the simple direction provided to them in respect to self-quarantine.

The Chatham-Kent Public Health is now investigating after the 41-year-old man potentially exposed the community.
The man was on his way back from Florida and was meant to self-isolate until July 24.
However, the police release does not say whether or not he has tested positive for COVID-19.
