Quarantine measures have officially been relaxed for select travellers. Fully vaccinated Canadians are now able to enter the country without having to undergo a 14-day quarantine.
Canadian citizens, permanent residents, and those registered under the Indian Act who have been fully immunized with an approved vaccine for at least 14 days will be exempt from the measure. They will not have to stay in a quarantined hotel, either.
To date, Ontario has seen 545,973 COVID-19 cases and 9,215 deaths.
