Canada Suspends Flights from the United Kingdom
Wednesday, December 23, 2020
The Government of Canada is closely monitoring the genetic variant of the virus that causes COVID-19 identified in the United Kingdom and is working with international partners, including the World Health Organization, to better understand this variant and its impacts.
Evidence is, however, limited at this time and more research is needed in Canada and around the world. Given the high number of cases of a variant COVID-19 virus observed in some areas in the United Kingdom, the decision has been made to suspend entry into Canada of all commercial and private passenger flights from the United Kingdom.
Additionally, passengers who arrived recently from the United Kingdom will receive additional screening and direction from the Government of Canada.
