Last month a young Kentucky couple made headlines worldwide for being required to wear electronic ankle monitors after the COVID positive wife agreed to self-quarantine but refused to sign state health department documents. Now a Kentucky man may be fined or jailed for breaking quarantine rules in Canada.

From Oak Bay News:

Kentucky man faces $750K fine for breaking quarantine rules in Alberta Rockies

A Kentucky man could face a fine of up to $750,000 or six months in jail for allegedly violating a quarantine order in the Alberta Rockies in late June.

John Pennington, 40, was initially given a $1,200 ticket on June 25 after staff at a Banff hotel called the RCMP saying they believed the United States citizen was violating the Alberta Public Health Act during the COVID-19 pandemic.

American visitors have been able to use a loophole allowing them to travel through Canada on the way to and from Alaska.

“RCMP attended the hotel and as a result of their investigation, they found a second individual in his presence, a female from Calgary, and found him to be breaching the requirements to quarantine while he travelled through Alberta so he was issued a ticket under the Alberta Public Health Act,” said RCMP Cpl. Tammy Keibel in Calgary.

She said officers received a second complaint the next day after someone spotted a car with American plates in a parking lot near the gondola to Sulphur Mountain.

Apparently, the initial $1200 ticket wasn’t enough of a warning. Happy Trails, Mr. Pennington.
