Travel to the South is being suspended until April 30 2021.

Travel from Canada to the South and Caribbean is being suspended until April 30 2021. 
As well travellers returning to Canada will have to test negative or quarantine in an approved hotel at their expense.

The federal government will force incoming international travellers to quarantine in hotels for at least three days and suspend all travel to Caribbean destinations in a bid to narrow the chance more coronavirus variants enter the country.

Trudeau said that among other measures, all arrivals to Canadian airports will have to pay out of pocket to quarantine in a hotel before being allowed to circulate freely in the country.

All arrivals will also have to undergo PCR COVID-19 testing and then isolate in “an approved hotel” for up to three days while they wait for their result.

Trudeau said the cost of this hotel quarantine stay will be “more than $2,000” per traveller.

Those who test negative will then be allowed to return to their home or other final destination and complete the rest of a 14-day quarantine under “increased surveillance.”

Positive cases will have to stay in hotels until they recover.

Trudeau said they hope to have testing and quarantine functions up and running in the next several weeks.

Additionally, all flights to and from vacation destinations in the Caribbean and Mexico will stop as of Sunday and remain suspended until at least April 30, Trudeau said.

“Now is just not the time to be flying,” Trudeau said.

“We can look forward to a better time when we can all plan those vacations.”

Trudeau said the four air carriers that carry passengers to the Caribbean and Mexico, Westjet, Air Canada, Sunwing and Air Transat, are cooperating with the travel restrictions.

All incoming foreign flights will now only be permitted to land in four locations; Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal and Calgary, where testing and hotel quarantine capabilities will be set up.

All incoming non-essential travellers at Canada’s land borders with the United States will also soon have to present a negative result from a PCR test before being allowed entry.
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
