The federal government is reminding vaccinated travellers that they must still complete a multi-night quarantine hotel stay when entering Canada via air.

In a tweet, the government explained that all non-essential air passengers must complete the mandatory quarantine stay, regardless of whether they’re partially or fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

“Attention! If you have received the #Covid19 vaccine and are flying back to Canada: The mandatory hotel quarantine requirement still applies,” the tweet explained.

The latest federal restriction requires anyone entering the country by air to take a COVID-19 test upon arrival and stay in a government-authorized hotel for at least three nights while they await results.

Travellers are expected to cover the cost of their hotel stay, which includes food, security, transportation and any additional COVID-19 testing.
