Authorities in Quebec City, Canada have announced that they will isolate “uncooperative” citizens in a coronavirus facility, the location of which remains a secret. During a press conference, Dr. Jacques Girard, who heads the Quebec City public health authority, drew attention to a case where patrons at a bar were ordered to wait until their COVID-19 tests came back, but disregarded the command and left the premises before the results came back positive. This led to them being deemed “uncooperative” and forcibly interned in a quarantine facility. Girard explains that if a person is told to stay in isolation, public health officials have the right to go to their home to make sure they comply. If not, the state can pick them up and force them to comply.
