Fully vaccinated Canadian and permanent resident travellers arriving at Mississauga’s Pearson Airport won’t have to quarantine beginning next month.

The Federal government today announced new guidelines for travellers that will come into effect on July 5 across Canada.

It will apply to people eligible to travel to Canada, including citizens, permanent residents, and people registered under the Indian Act.

Those travellers must have two doses of a vaccine approved by Health Canada, provide a negative COVID-19 test from 72 hours before arrival, take a second test upon arrival, and have a quarantine plan in the event the arrival test comes back positive.

All others will still have to stay in hotel quarantine for up to three days pending a negative arrival test, and then quarantine at home for the remainder of the 14-day period.

Children who aren’t vaccinated will be able to return home with their parents, but must quarantine there for two weeks and take a second test eight days after arriving home.
