It is now required for those who are returning to Canada to take a test, and while they wait for the result, they will need to quarantine for three days at a supervised hotel – a total of $2,000 per person.

For travellers who are making their way into the country, the Government of Canada has added nine more hotels at Toronto’s Pearson Airport to its list of ones approved, bringing the total to 13 to choose from.

“If you have recently returned to Canada, you must quarantine for 14 days from the date you arrived in Canada. This is mandatory, whether or not you have symptoms,” the government’s website reads.
