People before entering Canada through the land border need to be Covid-19 negative before arrival as announced by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau today.
From 15th February people entering Canada through the land border need to show a 72-hour PCR test just like people coming by air.
As per the Prime Minister border officers cannot legally deny entry to Canadians (including returning snowbirds) but whoever comes without proof of a test could face fines of up to $3,000.
This announcement was made after a month the government announced air travellers will need proof of negative PCR tests 3 days before boarding their flights home.
People landing by plane also will soon need to pay for a test after they land.
An announce was already made in January that all air passengers returning from non-essential trips abroad will have to self-isolate in a federally mandated facility for up to 72 hours at their own expense and well as the mandatory 14-day quarantine period for returning non-essential travellers.
However it is still not clear when new restrictive measures come into place.
