Canada will require COVID-19 test results for arriving passengers

Air passengers entering Canada will need to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test before traveling, the government of Canada announced at a December 30 press conference. Travelers must receive a negative polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test within a 72-hour period prior to boarding a plane, a requirement Intergovernmental Affairs Minister Dominic LeBlanc said will be in place “quickly,” though no precise date has yet been confirmed. The new requirement does not replace the mandatory 14-day quarantine period. “This is not an alternative to quarantine. It’s an additional layer,” warned Public Safety Minister Bill Blair.
