Have you been reading a great deal of information about Canada's new travel requirements?
While the sheer amount of new rules and regulations may feel overwhelming, Health Canada has released a new video to give you a better idea of what to expect.
That said, the video won't cut down the staggering cost of quarantine in one of the government-approved hotels. Currently, there are only 18 approved accommodations in B.C.
Travellers entering Canada by air need to book a hotel for a three-night stay upon arrival. They also need to provide a negative result for a COVID-19 molecular test taken within a 72-hour timeframe of their scheduled flight.
Have a look a the video.
Government-authorized hotels for travellers entering Canada by air
All hotels are located near one of the four Canadian airports currently accepting international flights. These accommodations are privately owned and authorized by the Government of Canada.
Some of the hotels offer direct online booking for government-authorized accommodation. For all others, identify that you require accommodation for the COVID-19 mandatory three-night stopover to ensure you are booked correctly.
While in quarantine travellers will have three meals delivered to their rooms but hotel personnel are not permitted inside. Guests will be provided with cleaning supplies.

Violating any instructions provided to you when entering Canada is an offence under the Quarantine Act and could lead to a fine of up to $750,000 and/or up to six months in prison.
