COVID-19: Travel

Any person entering Canada must self-isolate for 14 days whether or not they have symptoms of COVID-19. The only exceptions are those persons who cross the border regularly to ensure the continued flow of goods and services, and those who provide essential services. This is mandatory in accordance with the Quarantine Act.

Travellers entering Northwestern Ontario are recommended to monitor their health for symptoms of COVID-19 for 14 days.  Self-isolation is not required.  If you develop symptoms, even if mild, call the assessment centre nearest you or Telehealth Ontario at 1-866-797-0000.  For a list of assessment centres and contact information visit
