Fully vaccinated Canadians might be exempt from mandatory quarantine by early July. Also, travelers coming to Canada for essential purposes do not need to quarantine if they have received their second dose of vaccination within two weeks of their arrival in Canada.
Canadian health minister did not provide an exact date of commencement of these new rules as the federal government is still in talks with the departments of immigration and public safety and provincial governments. The government might implement the new quarantine measures from the first week of July.
As of now, Canada has approved only four vaccines for travelers: Pfizer, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson, and Astra Zeneca. The health minister, Patty Hajdu, has affirmed that the country will try to assess all other vaccines in the coming times.
However, despite being vaccinated, travelers would still have to show a negative COVID-19 test report upon arrival.
The Prime Minister of Canada has said that the country has been trying to follow a phased-in approach in order to facilitate cross-border travel. However, the government has declared no official date for the reopening of the Canadian border.
