As of March 13, 2020, all travellers arriving in Canada from international points must to self-isolate for 14 days. Self-isolation means staying at home and avoiding contact with other people to help prevent the spread of disease to others in your home and your community.
All international travellers must self-monitor for symptoms of COVID-19 for 14 days after returning to Canada. If you start having symptoms (headache, congestion, achiness, feeling unwell) or your symptoms get worse (fever, cough, difficulty breathing) isolate yourself from others as quickly as possible. Immediately call Tele-care 8-1-1. Describe your symptoms and travel history. They will provide advice on what you should do.
All individuals who have travelled outside the country should not visit those most at risk for severe illness. All international travelers are restricted entering any health-care facilities and long-term care facilities for 14 days after they have returned to Canada. We are very concerned about keeping this infection out of nursing homes, seniors’ residences, and other locations where vulnerable people are. Anyone who is feeling unwell should not enter such a facility.
All individuals who have travelled internationally on or after March 9. Those travellers are to avoid early learning and childcare centres for a period of 14 days. Individuals with question relating to schools and early learning and child-care facilities may call 1-844-288-3888.
