COVID-19: Federal ministers provide update on border measures | LIVE

1 min read

Federal Minister of health Jean-Yves Duclos, Minister of Transport Omar Alghabra, Minister of Public Safety Marco Mendicino, Minister of Tourism Randy Boissonnault, Minister of Intergovernmental Affairs, Infrastructure and Communities Dominic LeBlanc and other Government of Canada officials will hold a news conference to announce updates to the border measures implemented to protect the health of Canadians due to COVID-19.

Currently, the government advises against all non-essential international travel because of the threat posted by the Omicron variant.

Foreign nationals coming to Canada and people travelling within the country by plane, passenger train or boat must be vaccinated against COVID-19, with few exceptions.

Right now vaccinated international travellers are subject to COVID-19 test requirements before they cross the border, and potentially again once they arrive at a Canadian airport.

Travellers who have been outside Canada or the United States are also required to quarantine until their post-arrival test comes back negative.

Duclos suggested at a news conference last week the measures would be tweaked, saying the worst of the Omicron wave is now behind us.
