A Canadian couple that faced charges for refusing to stay in a government-mandated COVID quarantine hotel upon their return home from a Florida vacation has been vindicated after their fines were dropped by the Crown.

In January 2021, Audrey and Douglas Davies left for Florida and did not come home until June 26, 2021, through Toronto’s Pearson International Airport. At the time, the federal government of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau had in place a mandatory three-day quarantine hotel stay for all arriving passengers.

The Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms (JCCF) noted in a press release late last week that although Quarantine Act violations handed to the Davies for refusing to stay at a quarantine hotel were withdrawn, the Crown refused to admit its massive delay in filing the charges against the couple.
