Travel and COVID-19

Domestic T​ravel

  • Avoid non-essential travel to higher risk areas for non-essential reasons, especially to areas where the delta variant is present. 
  • Upon entry into our region from a higher-risk area, limit interactions with others as much as possible for 14 days. 
  • Regarding travel, it is not permitted to host others or be hosted in someone else's home. The only exceptions are for caregivers or for those who live alone.
Essential reasons for travelling may include: accessing medical services, shared parenting arrangements, palliative visits, etc; or travel to provide essential services such as truckers, health care providers, emergency response, enforcement officers, and essential construction and maintenance of public infrastructure.

General Travel advice:
  • Anyone who travels and develops symptoms should self-isolate and get tested for COVID-19.
  • It is advised that residents do not host out of town guests or gather indoors with anyone they do not live with. 
  • Follow all COVID-19 prevention measures (masking, physical distancing, hand hygiene) while travelling. 
  • Note that some workplaces​, schools, or communities may have policies that impact what you must do after travelling.

The activities you do while travelling can impact your risk of getting COVID-19. If you must travel, avoid:

  • public transportation (like airplanes, buses, and subways);
  • crowded areas where physical distancing is challenging;
  • getting within 2 metres of anyone you do not live with.
