hotel quarantine Vancouver

Hotel quarantine is now in full effect in B.C.

February 22 has arrived and this marks the date where travellers entering Canada will be asked to quarantine in a hotel at their own expense, while they await their COVID-19 results. The catch is that the hotels must be government appointed.

These Vancouver hotels have now been approved and authorized to accept quarantined travellers flying in internationally.

The new federal hotel quarantine orders limit international travel arrival to only 4 Canadian cities: Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto and Montreal.

Travellers must show proof of a negative COVID-19 test before being allowed to board flights into Canada. Regardless of test outcomes, all travellers are still required to self-isolate for 14 days.

More information may continue to roll out in terms of the hotel plan in coming days.

Will This Curb Travel?

Given the latest cases found on flights, and recent travelling to and from Hawaii, it will be interesting to see if this mandate will help curb the cases of COVID-19.
