Canada’s hotel quarantine should end, says COVID-19 panel Scientific panel advising the Canadian government, recommends ending the mandatory three-day hotel stay, but that the home quarantine policy remain in place.
They have outlined rules for five groups of travellers, including those who:
aren’t vaccinated and not exempt from the current travel restrictions;
are partially vaccinated and not exempt from the current travel restrictions;
are fully vaccinated and not exempt from the current travel restrictions;
have previously been infected with the virus, and you are not exempt from the current travel restrictions;
are exempt from the travel restrictions.
Currently, travellers to Canada are required to show a COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours of travelling. They must also take another COVID-19 test upon arrival, and quarantine at a hotel for three days while they wait for their results. They will still have to complete their 14 day quarantine after leaving the hotel, and will have to take another COVID-19 test on day 10 of this quarantine period.
The panel suggests that travellers who are fully vaccinated shouldn’t have to quarantine or take a COVID-19 test after 10 days. However, they would still have to take a COVID-19 test on arrival, and go into quarantine if positive.
