Punishing folks who don’t obey prevention rules of COVID-19

If you have COVID-19 you should stay home, isolate, wash hands etc…. but what if someone doesn’t?

And what is a good punishment?

Should police be arresting sick people for being sick? What if that arrest protects the broader community? What if the police arrest a large group of people based on stereotypes (homeless, race, gender etc..)?


Tickets for going to playgrounds and parks in Toronto

The City of Toronto is taking further action against residents who continue to use playgrounds, picnic tables and outdoor exercise equipment after officially closing down all public parks facilities last week.

It’s not ideal, but it is necessary according to Mayor John Tory, as reports flood in of people gathering en masse all over the city despite orders to stay home and social distance during the COVID-19 pandemic.

 


Quebec City police arrest COVID-19 patient for defying quarantine

Isaac Olson · CBC News · 

Quebec City police have arrested a woman, who has tested positive for the coronavirus, for being out in the city’s Limoilou neighbourhood despite being under a quarantine order.

The woman, who is potentially contagious, was arrested at around 2 p.m. ET Friday while out for a stroll, by order of the regional public health authority.

“This is the first time that we have executed this type of warrant,” said police spokesperson Sandra Dion.

The woman co-operated with police and was transported to hospital, according to Radio-Canada. It is not yet clear if she will face charges.

Quebec’s Public Health Act gives authorities broad powers during a public health emergency if someone jeopardizes the health and safety of others. The province declared a 10-day public health emergency — the first in its history — on Saturday.
