The mandatory quarantine order has been extended by the federal government until August 31, for the majority of people entering Canada, reports Global News.

The Quarantine Act order was originally set to expire on Tuesday at midnight.

Travellers entering Canada will have to complete 14 days of self-isolation, whether they have COVID-19 symptoms or not.

The updated order also requires travellers to wear non-medical masks as they enter Canada or are making their way to the location where they will be isolating, by transit. The non-medical mask is not required in private vehicles.

Penalties for breaking the order include a fine of as much as $750,000 or six months in prison. If the person who disobeyed the order caused bodily harm or death by wilfully breaking the order—the fine could reach $1 million.

Those who are exempt from the order include people crossing the border often to ensure the flow of goods and services as well as people entering in order to provide essential services.
