Canada announces easing of Covid health checks at borders

Canadian officials announced Tuesday an easing of Covid-19 checks and rules for travelers arriving at its borders, including no longer requiring PCR tests.

“Today I’m announcing that we are easing our border measures,” Health Minister Jean Yves Duclos told a news conference.

“These changes are possible not only because we have past the peak of Omicron, but because Canadians across the country are listening to the science and experts, following public health measures and taking steps to protect themselves, their families and their communities.”
