As of 11:59 EST on January 6, Ottawa is mandating that all air travellers arriving into Canada must prove they don’t have COVID-19 by taking a test.
The government of Canada is bringing the measures into place in a bid to quell new cases of COVID-19, seeking to prevent those carrying the virus from stepping foot on Canadian soil.
