New Glasgow Regional Police have charged a 23-year-old man for violating the Nova Scotia Health Protection Act for not self isolating for 14 days after arriving in the province.
Police spokesman Constable Ken MacDonald says they received a tip from a concerned citizen that a man did not self quarantine after arriving in Canada and Nova Scotia. The man charged in the case is a resident of California, but is originally from the Pictou County area.
The charge also includes a fine of $1,000.
Police say in an emergency, residents can call 9-1-1, but to report a violation of the Health Protection and Emergency Management Acts, to dial the department’s non-emergency line at 902-752-1941
