Canada is extending restrictions on travelers entering the country for another month to help combat the spread of the new coronavirus, Public Safety Minister Bill Blair said in a message on Twitter on Friday.
Travelers arriving in Canada have to self-quarantine for 14 days if they show no symptoms of COVID-19 and be in isolation for 14 days if they show symptoms.
Our government is extending existing restrictions on travel to Canada for one month - until September 30, 2020 - to limit the introduction and spread of COVID-19 in our communities, Blair wrote.
Canadian citizens and permanent residents returning to Canada will continue to be subject to strict quarantine measures.
Canada has taken several measures to control the flow of foreigners to the country, restricting discretionary travel, including tourism, recreation and entertainment.
