Authorities in Quebec City, Canada, have been isolating”uncooperative” citizens in a COVID-19 facility, according to a report.
“[W]e may isolate somebody for 14 days,” Girard said during the press conference. “And it’s what we did this afternoon… forced a person to cooperate with the evaluation .”
Girard clarifies that if a person is told to stay in isolation, then public health officials have the right to go to their house to be certain they comply. If not, the condition can pick up them and force them to comply.
“Because we have had individuals isolated at home. And afterward, we noticed the person wasn’t at home. Thus, we went into their house, and then told themwe are isolating you in which we would like you to become.”

Q: Thank you, Dr. Girard. Can you answer into French, please?
A: Yes. The order targeted two individuals who were not cooperating. And it’s great that we can eventually work with this particular supply. You know, earlier, when we were not in a health catastrophe, the Public Heath Director may utilize this provision for 72 hours while waiting for the judge’s confirmation of such a supply. From the Covid-19 situation, we may isolate somebody for 14 days. And it’s what we did this afternoon, also we have done in earlier times and, like this morning, forced a person to cooperate with the evaluation, and we’ve done it before with success, along with police collaboration was outstanding.
Q: If you purchase someone to not leave house for 14 days, does it happen in their house, it is not at home, 14 times at home, It is in a prison?
A: Would you really feel as if you are in a prison? Because that’s it. Often, it’s what we do. It is a location; we in the CIUSS [government agency] have the ability to offer for preventative isolations. It’s happening. Ultimately, it’s a much simpler supply when someone is not cooperating, and it gets more challenging.
