Canada requires incoming travellers to wear masks for two weeks

Toronto/IBNS: Canada's federal government has ordered masks to be worn by incoming travellers for two weeks, despite the lifting of most of the pandemic restrictions by provinces and territories.

According to the federal government's current rules, travellers, including children aged five and up, coming to Canada must wear a well-fitting mask for 14 days both in public indoor and outdoor spaces.

Incoming travellers must keep copies of their proof of vaccinations, according to the government website listing requirements for vaccinated travellers, as well as keep a list of close contacts and locations visited.

A spokesperson for Health Canada and the Public Health Agency of Canada has said in a statement that all travellers entering Canada must follow the emergency orders under the federal Quarantine Act, in order to "limit the spread of COVID-19 and variants in Canada."

"Wearing a mask continues to be effective because, when layered with other recommended public health measures, a well-constructed, well-fitting and properly worn mask can help prevent the spread of COVID-19," the spokesperson said.
