For the first time since March 2020, Canada has lifted its advisory against non-essential international travel. Before today the Government of Canada website had been advising not to travel abroad if it’s non-essential. Now it has been replaced with a notice recommending all travellers to be fully vaccinated before a trip.
The advisory states “Be aware that although you are better protected against serious illness if you are vaccinated, you may still be at risk of infection from the virus that causes COVID-19,” It further explained “If you’re unvaccinated. You remain at increased risk of being infected with and spreading the virus that causes COVID-19 when travelling internationally. You should continue avoiding non-essential travel to all destinations.
The notice also recommended all travellers keep an eye on the COVID-19 situation in their destination. This way they can follow the local public health measure and follow traditional measures, such as wearing a mask and physical distancing.
