“Also, travellers from the United Kingdom who are participating in the border pilot must immediately quarantine, whether they’ve had a negative test or not,” read the statement.
This news comes after Canada closed the border to all flights entering from the UK starting at midnight on December 20th due to a new coronavirus strain.
