An Ontario man has been charged by Peel Police for using a fraudulent COVID-19 document to try and get through Pearson Airport.

[He was] arrested and charged for Unlawfully Did Knowingly Use a Forged Document.
The incident took place at Pearson Airport on Monday, February 8.
When he attempted to get through a Canada Border Services Agency inspection checkpoint, officials realized the document was in fact fraudulent.
The man was arrested and charged with knowingly using a forged document, and he will appear in front of the Ontario Court of Justice in Brampton in April.
After the arrest, police officers escorted the man to a quarantine hotel for his required isolation period.
