Coronavirus Update

Apr 16, 2020

In Canada, as of 15 April officials are requiring returning residents to produce credible plans to self-isolate for 14 days upon arrival at one of the four designated international airports: Montréal-Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport (CYUL/YUL), Toronto Pearson International Airport (CYYZ/YYZ), Calgary International Airport (CYYC/YYC) and Vancouver International Airport (CYVR/YVR). In addition, travelers must wear face masks before proceeding to their final destinations. Those who are unable to present a credible plan for self-isolation to authorities will be transported to a quarantine location, such as a hotel, for a period of 14 days. Separately, in Ontario province — of which Toronto is the capital — officials extended the current state of emergency by an additional 28 days, as 483 new cases of COVID-19 were reported in the province on 14 April. Restrictive measures, including the closure of nonessential businesses, restaurants and mass gathering sites, are set to continue until the state of emergency expires. The state of emergency and related measures intended for social distancing were initially enacted on 17 March in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19. Health officials have recorded more than 7,950 COVID-19 cases and at least 411 fatalities in the province, which is the worst-affected after the neighboring province of Quebec that has 14,248 COVID-19 cases and 435 fatalities.
