SYDNEY, N.S. —

A 27-year-old man has been handed a hefty fine for failing to self-isolate after arriving in Cape Breton from outside the Atlantic bubble.

The Cape Breton Regional Police Service received a complaint on Friday that the man, who had recently arrived in Sydney from outside of the designated Atlantic Canada travel bubble, was not adhering to the mandatory 14-day quarantine.

Following an investigation, the officer determined he was in violation of Nova Scotia’s Health Protection Act and issued a $1,000 fine for failing to comply with the regulations.

Police remind people that the Health Protection Act rules are still in effect and that anyone with information about individuals not following the provincial orders can report it to the non-emergency police dispatch number at 902-563-5151.
