Here is everything Canadians need to know about COVID-19 testing for travel (Infographics)

The BC Centre for Disease Control has released infographics that explain what travellers need to know before coming to Canada. 

Effective Feb. 21, travellers coming into Canada via land will need to provide a negative result for a COVID-19 molecular test taken in the United States on arrival. The test needs to be taken within a 72-hour timeframe of arrival to Canada. 

Travellers entering Canada by land will also have to use ArriveCAN to enter their information regarding plans to quarantine.

Additionally, have your ArriveCAN receipt and test result ready at the border. However, if you develop symptoms while in transit, stop and seek medical attention.

Ensure you wear a mask while crossing the border and be prepared to answer eligibility and health screening questions, including quarantine plans. 

If you have symptoms or an unsuitable quarantine plan, your stay will be at a designated quarantine facility or other suitable location.
