As of October 1, 2022, all COVID-19 measures, including restrictions on entry into Canada, and testing and quarantine/isolation requirements for anyone entering Canada, will be lifted. As a result, effective October 1, 2022, any existing obligations to which you were subject (e.g. testing and/or quarantine/isolation) will also end.
Consequently, if you entered Canada on or after September 17, 2022, then starting on October 1, 2022:
You are no longer required to quarantine or isolate if you are currently completing your 14-day quarantine or 10 day isolation period.
If you were required to test upon entry and/or on day 8 after arriving in Canada, you are no longer required to complete either test.
If you have been selected for a mandatory random test, you are no longer required to complete the test.
As well, starting October 1, 2022, Switch Health will stop all testing activities, including analysis of samples, and reporting results to the Public Health Agency of Canada. If you were tested under the Canada border testing program before October 1, 2022, but did not get your results, please contact Switch Health. Please continue to follow local public health guidance, if it applies, and any applicable provincial or territorial requirements. Thank you for doing your part to help slow the spread of COVID-19 in Canada.
