The CDC says passengers on a domestic flight with a COVID-19 case should self-monitor for symptoms for 14 days. If you have symptoms, the centre recommends that you do a self-assessment.

Starting Oct. 1, Transport Canada updated its mask regulations. Bandanas, face shields and masks with exhalation vents are no longer accepted in Canadian airports.

Travel outside of Canada is not recommended at this time. All passengers who have traveled outside of Canada are required to self-isolate and monitor for symptoms for 14 days upon their arrival.
