Travel Restrictions and Guidance

As required by the Minimizing the Risk of Exposure to COVID-19 in Canada Order (Mandatory Isolation), anyone entering Canada must quarantine for 14 days, provide contact information and monitor for signs and symptoms. If symptoms develop during quarantine, call your local health authority (Windsor-Essex County Health Unit - 519-258-2146) to determine next steps. Compliance with quarantine requirements is subject to verification and enforcement.
Individuals cannot end quarantine early even if they’ve been tested for COVID-19 and have received negative test results. This 14 day quarantine period is to limit any potential transmission of travel acquired COVID-19. When someone is exposed to COVID-19, symptoms can develop at any time during the 14 day incubation period. Anyone who is within their 14 day quarantine period and develops symptoms should immediately isolate from others and contact their local Public Health Authority (Windsor-Essex County Health Unit - 519-258-2146).
At this time, Dr. Ahmed, the Medical Officer of Health, does not recommend non-essential travel outside of Windsor and Essex County. If you’re planning on travelling within Canada, verify restrictions and exemptions by visiting the Government of Canada website.
