An American couple was fined for defying orders to quarantine in Canada after crossing the border, according to new reports.
David and Anne Sippell from Excelsior, Minnesota were told to drive directly to their destination and self-isolate for two weeks when they arrived June 24 through Fort Frances, Ontario, the Global News reported.
But David, 66 and Anne, 65, were allegedly seen flouting the rules in various destinations around the border town, the outlet reported.
They were charged with failure to comply with an order or subjecting to any condition the entry into Canada, under the Quarantine Act, the report said.
Each was hit with a fine of $1,000 Canadian dollars — or about $738 USD — for not complying with the self-quarantine orders, news outlet TBNewsWatch reported.
Canada has recorded more than 107,000 coronavirus cases, including 8,732 deaths, according to the latest figures from Johns Hopkins University.
