There are four government-authorized hotels for quarantined passengers that arrive at Toronto Pearson International Airport.
Those who are returning to Canada must now take a test, and as they await the result, they will be required to be in quarantine for three days at a supervised hotel. Accommodations will cost $2,000 per person – which includes the cost of private tests and the hotel stay.
If they receive a negative test result, they can go home to quarantine with enhanced supervision. But if the test is positive, they will be taken to a government facility.
International travellers arriving in Toronto will have the option to book from Alt Hotel Pearson Airport, Four Points by Sheraton Element Toronto Airport, Holiday Inn Toronto International Airport, or Sheraton Gateway Hotel in Toronto International Airport.
While the costs of these hotel stopovers may vary by location, the price will include costs associated with the food, room, security, transportation, and infection prevention and control measures.
All passengers will be required to provide their name, date of birth, arrival city and date, payment information, special requests and accessibility concerns, and pet information.
Travellers will receive an email confirmation of their accommodation within four hours of booking.
The stricter border control measures are to limit virus spread, especially as the COVID-19 variants of concern cases increase in the country.
