Quarantine in a hotel? It's been done elsewhere, and some say it's worth it
MONTREAL -- Both Quebec's premier and the Prime Minister are mulling the idea of making travellers pay to quarantine in a hotel for two weeks upon their return to Canada.
Some people are on board with this idea: hotels, including Montreal hotels, which have a 90 per cent vacancy rate right now.
Other countries have done the same, and a former Quebecer who experienced that says it was worth it.
Justin Giovannetti was required to stay in a hotel in self-isolation at first when he moved to New Zealand last year, and he says it was a reasonable request.
"I think that's kind of the sacrifice that people are willing to make so that you can go to a rugby game with 40,000 people and that, you know, you can live life as normal," he said.
