Canada to require negative tests from all air travelers


#Canada will demand negative tests

of all air travelers before arrival

#Canada will require travelers arriving in the country to present a negative test dated no more than three days before their arrival. “#An additional measure which will require all passengers arriving in #Canada to have a test for #Covid-19” which is “negative”, will be “quickly” requested by the government, said #Dominique #LeBlanc, #Minister of #Intergovernmental #Affairs during a press briefing by several #Canadian ministers.

The measure should come into force “in the next few days”, added the member of the #Canadian government.

#Too many “non-essential” trips

#This new measure comes after several cases of contamination with the new variant of the coronavirus circulating in the #United #Kingdom have been detected in #Canada since last week. #Canada has suspended until #January 6 all flights from the #United #Kingdom after the appearance in this country of the new variant.

Canada#Travelers arriving in #Canada, whether #Canadian or not, are subject to a mandatory 14-day quarantine or face a penalty of up to six months in prison and / or a maximum fine of CAD $ 750,000, or 478,000 euros.

#Visits to the homes of quarantined travelers by #Canadian authorities will also be “increased in the coming weeks” to ensure compliance with this measure.

#Even though “most #Canadians” have followed authorities’ recommendations, “some are still traveling for non-essential reasons,” said #Dr. #Howard #Njoo, deputy chief public health officer. “It’s very worrying,” he said.

#Several confined regions

#On #Tuesday, #Ontario #Premier #Doug #Ford said he was “extremely disappointed” with his finance minister, #Rod #Phillips, who traveled to the #Caribbean and urged him to return home “immediately”. #Canada had 571,070 cases of coronavirus and 15,440 dead on #Wednesday.
