Negative COVID tests no longer accepted to board planes and trains in Canada

Beginning Tuesday, travelers 12 and older wanting to board a plane or train in Canada, or to enter Canada, will have to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19.

The policy came into effect on October 30, but since then there has been a grace period where a negative molecular test no older than 72 hours would be accepted.

However that ends Tuesday

Air Canada and WestJet have confirmed that all of their passengers will be asked for proof of vaccination and not just some at random.

Transport Canada also issued a warning on the weekend.

Masks and health screenings will also still be mandatory.

The federal government is also warning that even Canadians and permanent residents abroad will not be able to return home without a full slate of approved  COVID-19vaccines.
