Recently in the news there have been vacationers and snowbirds complaining that our government is making them quarantine when they return home. Apparently it's too much to ask of our citizens.


This pandemic has been going on for almost a year now. You have been advised by multiple government bodies to STAY HOME, yet you have decided to travel. 

This is YOUR issue, not the tax payers, not the Governments. It was YOUR choice to leave your home, now it's YOUR cost to quarantine when you get home. 

It doesn't matter if you self isolate wherever you are staying or not, on your return you will be travelling with the general public. 

You could afford to travel, you can afford to quarantine for a few days to ensure that you're not bringing a strain of the virus home with you. 

Since this pandemic began, our family has led a solitary life. We haven't travelled farther than 100kms from home, let alone the province, or country. We have endured not spending time with parents and grandparents. 

Why should you, who chose to leave your home, get to skirt any of these restrictions? Why should you not have to quarantine when you return? Why is this even an issue? 

You left, Now You get to quarantine when you come back. End of Story!

Now you know why this blog is called First World Problems!
