Ontario mom faces COVID-19 lockdown charges for leaving kids with grandparents to pick up groceries

Ontario mom faces COVID-19 lockdown charges for leaving kids with grandparents to pick up groceries

OPP Turn on Families trying to to the right thing

SIMCOE, THUNDER BAY, SAULTA STE MAIRE, ONTARIO  ~~~~~~  January 18, 2021  (LSN)    An Ontario mother is facing charges under the province’s COVID-19 lockdown rules because she left her kids at their grandparents’ house so that she could go to the store to get groceries.

According to a NorfolkToday report that was updated yesterday with new information, a 34-year-old mom from Simcoe, Ontario, was allegedly charged by police under the Reopening Ontario Act, which bans in-person gatherings. Also charged was the 58-year-old owner of the home, which is located in Norfolk County.

The NorfolkToday report says that police received a call stating that there were people seen gathering in a residence last Saturday, and as a result, stopped a car that was seen leaving the home in question. Charges soon followed.

By looking through “comments on Facebook,” the NorfolkToday report claims that they were able to locate the woman, who said she was leaving the house after picking up her young kids following a grocery and errand run. The report says the woman asked not to be named. 

The NorfolkToday report stated that the woman told them she has taken time off her job to help with “virtual learning.” Due to her “significant other's” work schedule, she has been leaving her kids with their grandparents to “run to the store and get items for the family.” 

According to the NorfolkToday report, the fined mom claimed that her youngest child grabs things in stores and it would be safer for all if her kids were to be under someone’s care while she shopped. 

The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) detachment for Norfolk County would not provide a comment or details regarding the charges levied against the mom, according to the Norfolktoday report, which stated that the woman said she will fight the charges. 

Premier of Ontario Doug Ford announced a province-wide lockdown that began December 26 and banned all in-person gatherings. 
On Thursday, Ontario introduced new lockdown measures that effectively place the province  under a state of near-total lockdown.  

Ontario’s stay-at-home order has many exemptions that allow one to leave their place of residence, including to obtain or provide childcare, as well as to shop for food or essential items, including ones “that are necessary for the health or safety of an individual.”

The order also provides for “assisting others” by allowing one to take a child to the “child’s parent or guardian or the parent or guardian’s residence.” 

The order also allows for one to do “anything that is necessary to respond to or avoid an imminent risk to the health or safety of an individual.”
