Canada drops Covid advisory warning citizens to avoid going abroad, but maintains request for travellers to be double-jabbed — RT World News

Canada’s government decided to scrap its advice to citizens not to travel to non-essential destinations for the first time in March 2020. However, it urged everyone to get fully vaccinated prior to traveling abroad.

The change to the government’s official travel advisory page was made Thursday evening, ending a warning that had been in place since the Covid pandemic broke out in March 2020, indicating the country is relaxing its border restrictions.

“Community transmission of COVID-19 continues in many countries. You should be fully vaccinated by completing a COVID-19 vaccine series in Canada or abroad at least 14 days before traveling,” the Canadian government’s travel advisory now states.

The government did not abandon its original policy of issuing travel warnings to each country. However, it maintained that the threat to virus health meant people shouldn’t cruise on any ship.

Despite the change in guidance, Canada’s federal health ministry has not issued a public comment on the matter.

The World Health Organization has reported that Canada has successfully vaccinated more then 80% of its eligible citizens. Canada has seen more than 1.68million confirmed cases and 28603 deaths from the Covid virus since the outbreak.
