(SUMMIT NEWS) – Authorities in Quebec City, Canada have announced they will isolate "uncooperative" citizens in a coronavirus facility, the location of which remains a secret.
During a press conference, Dr. Jacques Girard, who heads the Quebec City public health authority, drew attention to a case where patrons at a bar were ordered to wait until their COVID-19 tests came back, but disregarded the command and left the premises before the results came back positive.
This led to them being deemed "uncooperative" and forcibly interned in a quarantine facility.

"[W]e may isolate someone for 14 days," Girard said during the press conference. "And it is what we did this morning…forced a person to cooperate with the investigation…and police cooperation was exceptional."
The health official then outlined how the state is also tracking down people for violating their home quarantine and forcibly removing them to the secret facility.
