Canada to resume mandatory random COVID-19 testing at 4 major airports

From The Points Guy:

Random testing will resume on July 19 for fully vaccinated people arriving at four airports: Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ), Vancouver International Airport (YVR), Montreal-Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport (YUL) and Calgary International Airport (YYC).

This testing will occur either in person at select testing provider locations (including pharmacies) or at virtual appointments where participants can take self-proctored tests. Additionally, random testing will continue at land border entry points.

Within 15 minutes of completing their customs declaration, travelers will be notified via email if they have been selected to take a random test, according to the Canadian government. The email should contain instructions on how to schedule their test. More information on what to expect with mandatory arrival testing can be found here.

Although random, this testing is mandatory for anyone selected.

“If your arrival test result is positive, you must go into isolation and follow the federal requirement to isolate for 10 days from the date of the test result,” per a press release issued by Canadian officials on July 14. “Your 10-day isolation is required, even if the isolation requirement is shorter in your province or territory.”

Although Canada dropped vaccination requirements for domestic and outbound travelers, all incoming international visitors must show proof of COVID-19 vaccination to enter Canada at this time. Partially vaccinated or unvaccinated travelers continue to be barred from entering Canada.
