Unvaccinated children aged five to eleven traveling with a fully vaccinated adult will no longer require a COVID-19 test to enter Canada beginning Monday.
Pre-entry tests will still be required for partially vaccinated or unvaccinated travellers over the age of 12 who wish to visit Canada.
A COVID-19 test is not currently required for children under the age of five.
Several other minor changes to ease restrictions on international travelers were announced by government officials and will go into effect on the same day.
Fully vaccinated travellers, and any kids under 12 accompanying them, will no longer need to provide their quarantine plans when they enter the country.
And when vaccinated people arrive in Canada, they won’t need to wear a mask for 14 days, keep a list of contacts or report COVID-19 symptoms.
The government will also do away with the need for travellers to quarantine if someone in their group develops COVID-19 symptoms or tests positive.
