The federal government says it plans to require air travellers to test negative for COVID-19 before landing in Canada.
Intergovernmental Affairs Minister Dominic LeBlanc says cabinet ministers decided this morning to quickly enact the new requirement.
All passengers on flights entering Canada will require a negative PCR test three days before their arrival.
LeBlanc didn’t say when the requirement will be in place.
The announcement follows criticism that federal travel restrictions and quarantine rules have been too lax.
