Canada resumes mandatory random testing for fully vaccinated air travelers

On July 14, the federal government announced that mandatory random COVID-19 testing for fully vaccinated air travelers will resume on July 19. Testing will be limited to international travelers arriving to Canada at four major airports: Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto, and Montreal, and the testing will happen offsite for arriving travelers and within terminal for transiting passengers. Testing will now be moved away from the airports to off-site locations such as pharmacies. Those selected for a mandatory random test will receive an email notification within 15 minutes of completing their customs declaration, which will provide instructions on how to arrange for a test.
