Your stay and condition of stay at Quarantine Sites, approved by the Chief Medical Officer (CMO) are guided by the provisions of the Public Health Act, Quarantine Act and the Public Health (Quarantine) Regulations.
These legislations give the CMO, as the Public Health Authority, wide powers to protect Public Health.
A person can be quarantined at home, on any vessel or at a site designated by the Chief Medical Officer.
Any person who refuses or wilfully omits to do any act which he or she is required to do by this Act, or refuses or wilfully omits to carry out any lawful order, instruction or condition made, given or imposed by any officer or other person acting under the authority of this Act, commits an offence and shall be liable, on summary conviction, to a fine not exceeding five thousand five hundred dollars or to a term of imprisonment not exceeding six months or to both such fine and imprisonment. (Sec 7(b) Quarantine Act, chapter 9.23)
