Dr. Theresa Tam told media on Friday that, starting either today or tomorrow, door knockers will check in on those meant to be in quarantine. Toronto and Montreal will be the first cities of 35 that will have door knockers.
"There'll be increased security contractors that would go and do more door-knocking to check on people who are in quarantine. So, I think that starts either today or tomorrow in Toronto and Montreal, broadening out to 35 cities, so that we can have an added level of assurance that people are observing that quarantine just in terms of compliance," said Tam.
"The quarantine plans themselves, given the variants, we will be lookin carefully at who that individual traveller may be in a household with, and prohibitions of what a satisfactory quarantine plan might entail," Tam continued.
