Toronto (Canada), ap. 22 (EFE) .- Canada has announced that it will ease some of the Covit-19 restrictions imposed on foreign travelers from Monday, but will continue to require the use of masks on aircraft, trains and cruise ships. Government today.

Canadian health officials announced on Monday that children under the age of 12 who have not been vaccinated will no longer need a negative Govt-19 test to enter the country.

In addition, international travelers vaccinated with the full schedule are not required to submit an isolation plan while staying in Canada.

Passengers from abroad who have been vaccinated do not have to wear a mask in public for the first fourteen days after returning home, which is now mandatory.

The Public Health Agency of Canada (PHCA) announced the new measures today.

Dr. Theresa Tom, Director of the ASPC, explained that Canada will retain its obligation to use masks between aircraft, trains and cruise ships. In the United States, a judge this week removed this obligation.

Tom said the number of Omigron PA2 variants in Canada continues to rise, and that the forced use of masks on planes, trains and ships is “one of the least invasive measures” to provide extra protection.

In a statement, Canadian Transport Minister Omar Alcabra reminded passengers traveling on planes and trains to wear masks “throughout their journey”.

For travelers who are not immunized against the disease, it is still mandatory to undergo molecular tests for Covit-19 and maintain isolation within eight to 14 days after arrival in the country. EFE
