Canada prepares to ease isolation rules for inoculated travelers

Canada is preparing to ease border restrictions for travelers who have been fully inoculated against Covid-19, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on Monday.

Canada is planning to remove the current 14-day quarantine period for travelers who have received two vaccine doses, Bloomberg reported. Travelers entering Canada would still be tested for the coronavirus and may be required to quarantine for a shorter period, according to the report.

The plan is expected to be announced within days, Bloomberg said..

Separately, Politico reported late on Monday that Canada was eyeing the date of June 22 to begin easing restrictions at the US border.

Trudeau’s government has signaled it could start easing COVID-19 restrictions at the Canada-US frontier on June 22 if the country’s vaccination campaign stays on its current trajectory, the mayors of Canadian border cities were cited as saying by Politico.
