Erroneous Quarantine Orders
The Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) and the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) were made aware that quarantine orders were being issued to residents of Northwest Angle #33 and Windigo Island in the First Nation of Animakee Wa Zhing #37, who were deemed exempt from the Mandatory Quarantine Order, under section 6(n).
