Some travel mandates lifted

By Rosalind Russell – The travel and aviation industries are welcoming the federal government’s decision to ease COVID-19 restrictions.
As of Monday, travellers will no longer need to provide proof of vaccination for domestic flights or
interprovincial trains or if leaving for foreign destinations.
The requirement that all federally-regulated transportation workers be vaccinated has also been lifted.
Federal Transport Minister Omar Alghabra says the restrictions are being eased because the COVID-19 situation has improved greatly since they were imposed last October, not because of crowding at some major airports.
However, the mandate that face masks be worn during a flight continues in place.
And foreign citizens must still be vaccinated if they want to travel to Canada. Photo: COVID-19 mandates are changing for travellers, especially those on planes and trains. Photo by Bernardo Ferrari –
