The notice, shared on January 17, warns travellers to “Expect significant delays for mandatory #COVID19 testing.”
“You could be stuck at your destination,” it concludes.
The message comes around 10 days after Canada’s travel rules got an update.
All incoming air passengers are now required to show a negative COVID-19 test prior to boarding, in addition to the country’s mandatory 14-day quarantine period upon arrival.
Transport Canada has warned on multiple occasions that taking a trip abroad during the pandemic could result in difficulty returning to Canada.
Canadians have even been told they could get stuck overseas if they’re unable to obtain the necessary documentation to return.
