As COVID-19 mandates gradually ease, many Canadian residents are planning to travel this summer. With changes in restrictions, it’s important to know what they exactly are if you’re planning a trip. The most recent change will be in effect as of June 20 which will allow passengers who are not fully vaccinated to board a plane or train in Canada.
Previously all passengers either needed two doses of an approved COVID-19 vaccine or one of the Johnson & Johnson’s. The federal government has also lifted vaccination requirements for federally regulated workers. This will allow airline and airport employees who went on unpaid leave because of their vaccination status to return to work.
The government said they would reinforce mandates if the COVID-19 situation changes for the worse. Unvaccinated people must still meet additional testing and quarantine requirements or face a fine. Masks are still mandatory for boarding planes or trains.
