  1. So these out of towners are at their cottages? Woodville, Napanee and Dundas are the home addresses. Why were they not also being charged with being non isolating in their homes? They were not at their residences. For crying out loud, they had them right there and did not charge them for not staying home? No wonder people are going and doing what they want. No one seems to care or listen.
