A Vaughan parent has been handed a hefty fine after York Region Public Health alleges they sent their child who was experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 to daycare, a spokesperson for the region confirmed to CP24.
According to York Region Public Health, the incident occurred on Aug. 3 at a child-care facility in the region.
They allege that the parent violated the region’s Sec. 22 order by sending their child to daycare despite the fact that they would not have passed the daily COVID-19 screening tool.
The parent was subsequently charged $770 and a victim surcharge fee totalling $880.
Officials confirm that 15 children at facility have now tested positive for COVID-19.
