    An Ottawa woman has been charged under Canada’s Quarantine Act after police say she violated self-isolation orders to work at a long-term health facility in the city.

    The Ottawa Police Service said it received a complaint on Oct. 2 that a 53-year-old woman had broken quarantine following a trip abroad.

    ... she left her residence and went to work on Sept. 30 at a long-term care facility in Ottawa.

    ... Violating the self-isolation order of the Quarantine Act comes with a fine of up to $750,000 and possible jail time of up to six months.

    Those found to have put others at risk while contravening the act are subject to fines of up to $1 million and up to three years in prison.
