The federal government is hinting it will soon announce it’s dropping mandatory PCR testing for fully vaccinated Canadians who travel abroad.

Currently, anyone who goes outside Canada must provide proof of a negative PCR test before returning home.
It has to be taken within 72-hours of scheduled departure on a flight or arrival at a land border.
”Our government is actively reviewing the measures in place at our borders, and we should be able to communicate changes on this next week,” said Health Minister Jean-Yves Duclos.
Chief Public Health Officer Dr. Theresa Tam recently suggested surveillance testing would be a better use of resources.
”It is a capacity drain on the systems as a whole.  The whole world has Omicron,” she added.
The United Kingdom and Denmark are among countries that have dropped all test requirements for fully vaccinated travellers.
