Rules, loopholes, and true cost of Canada's quarantine hotels
CA, 20 Feb 2021
Starting Monday, air travellers returning to Canada from non-essential trips will have to isolate in a government-authorized hotel at their own expense.
The federal government has released a list of approved hotels for returning travelers to complete their mandatory quarantine in the four cities where international flights are permitted to land amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
The measure, announced recently by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, will require most people entering Canada by air to isolate for up to 72 hours at their own expense in a government-approved hotel as they await results of a compulsory COVID-19 test taken upon arrival.
During their stay, one is required to abide by the rules and regulations of the Quarantine Act that includes not leaving the hotel room unless it’s for a medical emergency, for an essential medical service or treatment or unless pre-authorized by a government official. Mike Drolet has more.
