A first young man who arrived from Florida did not want to answer our questions by explaining that he was going to the restaurant, when he should have gone directly to his home and isolated himself.

Another person encountered had to take another flight back to Toronto, and therefore was unable to confine himself.

A group of very young women who were also returning from Florida got into an Uber car. Travelers arriving from Washington also took a cab with direct contact with the driver.

Several of the taxi drivers, anxious to provide good service to customers, were seen grabbing passenger suitcases to place them in their vehicles, without disinfecting them.

More responsible travelers told TVA News that they had a clear plan, that grocery shopping had already been done, and some said they would use ready-to-eat services to stay in their homes.

Some had the leisure to be able to telework during their quarantine.

A total of 73 flights are scheduled to land at Montréal-Trudeau today, more than half of which are from outside the country. With yesterday, the total reached 143 flights.

About fifteen flights come from sunny destinations.
