Canada Will Be Requiring Every Traveller Coming Into The Country To Quarantine In A Hotel

This will happen while they await the results of new post-travel COVID-19 tests.

There's a new rule being introduced as part of Canada's travel restrictions and all travellers coming into the country have to quarantine in hotels while they wait for a negative COVID-19 test.

Justin Trudeau announced the new measure on January 29 and said that mandatory testing at airports will be introduced in the coming weeks.

He said that after travellers take the test, they'll have to wait for their results for up to three days at an approved hotel at their own expense.

That is estimated to cost more than $2,000.

If the test comes back negative, people can then quarantine at home but if it's positive, they'll immediately have to quarantine in designated government facilities.

Trudeau said this is to make sure that travellers are not carrying variants of concern.

He had mentioned recently that his government was looking at ways to strengthen travel restrictions and that nothing was off the table.

Premiers have urged Trudeau to take stronger action when it comes to travel rules because of COVID-19 virus variants.
