The Government of Canada has put in place emergency measures that require mandatory 14-day self-isolation for all persons entering Canada, even if they do not have COVID-19 symptoms.

The measures are intended to help contain the outbreak and limit the spread of COVID-19 in Canada.

Upon return to Canada, you will be asked if you have a cough, fever or difficulty breathing. If you have any of these symptoms, you will be asked to follow certain protocols.

If you have symptoms but do not have a place to isolate, you will be required to isolate for 14 days in a facility designated by the Chief Public Health Officer.

If you do not have symptoms, you must self-isolate for 14 days and monitor your health for cough, fever, or difficulty breathing.

Isolate in a place where you will not be in contact with vulnerable people, such as older adults and individuals with underlying medical conditions.

Know what to do.
