The epidemic is still ongoing; according to Minister of Health Jean-Yves Duclos, everyone must continue to take precautions to keep one another safe.

According to Duclos, people must maintain current immunization records to be fully protected against infection, transmission, and serious sequelae. As we have said throughout, Canada’s border controls will continue to be adaptable and flexible while being informed by reason and research.

Regardless of whether they have had a COVID-19 vaccination, travelers must register their travel details via the ArriveCAN app, according to PHAC.
