Pearson Airport in Mississauga

International travellers arriving at Mississauga’s Pearson Airport and other border crossings will not have to show proof of a negative COVID-19 test beginning next month.

Reports from Ottawa indicate this latest round of lifting measures meant to keep the pandemic in-check will be announced tomorrow (March 17) and go into affect at Pearson and other airports around the country as well as land crossings where people enter the country.

The new rules are expected to take place on April 1.

Up until now air passengers have been subject to random spot checks at Pearson for both international and domestic flights.

Some recent travellers have complained about being randomly pulled over and questioned about their health status even before embarking on domestic flights and that possibility will still exist under the new guidelines, according to reports.

Further, travellers will still have to use the ArriveCan app before entering the country.
