Read Time:1 Minute, 27 Seconds

As of today, July 3, Canada has reported 104,772 cases and 8,642 deaths. More than half of the total cases – more specifically 55,593 cases – are located in the province of Quebec, followed by the province of Ontario with 35,370 cases.
Travelers who are not Canadian or permanent residents and have symptoms consistent with COVID-19 will not be allowed to enter Canada. People returning to Canada will have to self-isolate for 14 days even without having shown any symptoms by the time of arrival. People who have to cross the border as a daily basis to go to work are exempted from this restriction. So are the people who are making necessary medical deliveries required for patient care, work in the trade and transportation sector who are important for the movement of goods and people, and have to cross the border to provide or receive essential services, including emergency responders and personnel providing essential services to Canadians related to the COVID-19 outbreak.
People traveling within Canada will be subject to a health check prior to boarding. Those who show any symptoms of COVID-19, or have been refused boarding in the past 14 days due to a medical reason related to COVID-19, or are subject to a provincial or local public health order, will not be permitted to board. This measure also applies to people arriving from outside Canada and taking a connecting flight.
People traveling from the US to Canada for tourism, recreation, or entertainment will not be permitted to enter, only people with non-discretionary travel purposes will. Even foreign nationals arriving from the US with symptoms of COVID-19 will not be allowed to enter Canada.
