Toronto, Agency. Corona cases are now decreasing around the world. In such a situation, countries around the world are now also removing restrictions in view of the decreasing outbreak of Kovid-19. Meanwhile, citizens going to Canada have got a big relief. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has signed on to end the vaccine requirement for people entering Canada in late September. An official familiar with the matter gave this information to The Associated Press on Thursday.
Like Canada, the United States requires foreign nationals to be vaccinated when entering the country. No change in mandate is expected in the US in the near future.
Foreign travelers who are not allowed to enter Canada are currently required to undergo a corona test and a 14-day quarantine upon arrival in the country.
Trudeau has agreed to end the cabinet order imposing mandatory COVID-19 vaccination requirements on September 30, the official said.
The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he is not authorized to speak publicly on the matter. The official said it needs to be finalized and signed by the prime minister earlier this week.
Trudeau’s Liberal government is still deciding whether to maintain the requirement for passengers to wear face masks on trains and airplanes.
Non-vaccination professional athletes such as major league baseball players will be allowed to play in Toronto in the playoffs if the Blue Jays make it to the postseason. They are not currently allowed to cross the border into Canada.
It is mandatory to show the vaccination certificate
Explain that like the United States, foreign nationals coming to Canada are required to show a vaccination certificate. However, so far the US has not made any announcement regarding the end of vaccination whether they will also take similar steps by 30 September.
Significantly, more than 42 lakh corona cases have been reported in Canada so far. Whereas more than 45 thousand people have lost their lives due to corona virus.
