Coronavirus: New rules on non-essential travel to take effect in coming days

New restrictions for incoming travellers will come into effect on Feb. 22, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced on Friday — including a fresh hotel quarantine requirement.

Trudeau added there will be exceptions to these new restrictions, particularly for truckers and health-care workers travelling into Canada.

In late January, Trudeau announced that travellers arriving in the country by air will have to take a mandatory PCR coronavirus test. While they await the results of that test, they will be forced to quarantine at a hotel for up to three days — on their own dime.

As Abigail Bimman reports, there are still unanswered questions and confusion surrounding the process.
