Justin Trudeau’s government is pivoting hard away from the Covid pandemic restrictions, but thus far, only for travelers into and out of Canada.
The Canadian government on Monday announced that it is dropping all COovid-19 border restrictions for anyone entering Canada. This includes: proof of COVID-19 vaccination, quarantine, and isolation requirements as well as all mandatory Covid testing.
According to CTV News, Canada is also making the “ArriveCan application optional, and is lifting the mask mandate and health check requirements for travellers on planes and trains.”
“Declaring the imminent end of these restrictions—effective Oct. 1— marks a major milestone in Canada’s pandemic response,” CTV noted.
