December 7, 2021 - Parkland School Division families who are considering international travel during the upcoming Winter Break are advised to frequently check the latest border restrictions and measures being implemented to limit the spread of COVID-19. Those can be found on the Government of Canada website at:
These measures, including any applicable quarantines or testing requirements are always subject to change and could even change mid-trip so check back often. The link above clearly indicates requirements and/or exemptions available for vaccinated, partially vaccinated or unvaccinated children or dependents.
On November 30th, the Government of Canada announced additional border measures to reduce the risk of the importation and transmission of COVID-19 and its variants in Canada related to international travel.
“Moving forward, border testing surveillance will be adjusted based on the latest available evidence to further reduce the risk of importation of the Omnicron variant.
The Government of Canada will continue to assess the evolving situation, monitor case data, and adjust border measures as required. The Government of Canada is working collaboratively with its provincial and territorial counterparts. While the impact of all variants continues to be monitored in Canada, vaccination in combination with public health and individual measures, is working to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and its variants.”
