Canada releases list of government-authorized hotels for incoming travellers quarantine stay
The Canadian Government released a list of some hotels that are government-authorized to host international air travellers for their mandatory quarantine.
Starting February 22, international air travellers to Canada must take a COVID-19 Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test upon arrival. Travellers must then wait for results in an approved facility for up to three (3) days.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau previously announced that the new measure had an estimated cost of $2,000.00 for the traveller. However, there are reports stating that the cost to the traveller is actually quite a bit lower.
The released list is a first draft and there will be more added in the coming days. A reminder that only Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto, and Montreal are accepting international flights, all of which are where the authorized hotels are situated.
