Teenagers living in group homes in Laval were confined to windowless rooms for 10 straight days this month, in the name of COVID-19 control – though they didn’t have COVID-19.

The rule, in place for two weeks, was written specifically for youth group homes and was also applied to much younger children, social workers said.

“It’s like if she’s been in jail,” said one mother about her 15-year-old daughter, who lives in a group home because she was self-mutilating and running away.
