On Thursday, the federal government announced that Canada will stop its pre-entry COVID-19 testing mandates for fully vaccinated travellers. The change will come into effect by the end of the month, according to CBC News. The government said random testing of arrivals will continue to detect new COVID-19 variants.
The ministers of health, transport and tourism will announce the changes at a press conference Thursday morning. As of right now, travellers must demonstrate proof of a negative antigen or molecular test prior to their flight or arrival at the border. That specific testing requirement will be lifted by April 1 for fully vaccinated individuals.
This change comes two years into the pandemic as provinces and territories end their own restrictions and mandates. Many provinces have dropped the vaccine passport system and some will soon drop the mask mandates.
