"Chaos" at Canadian quarantine hotels

February 27, 2021 - In the first weekend following the Canadian government's rollout of its controversial hotel quarantines for people flying into Canada, Canadian media were awash with reports of a system in "chaos." Travellers are reporting: 
  • having to wait for hours, and often being disconnected, when trying to book hotel rooms through the Public Health Agency phone lines (mandatory for re-entering the country); 
  • having to wait for hours in hotel lobbies surrounded by other travellers (all suspected of being contagious) before getting a room;
  • being deprived of food, in some cases for more than 24 hours; 
  • themselves and other travellers (again, all suspected of being contagious) leaving their rooms,  due to the above problems.
