An official familiar with the matter says Canada will reduce the vaccine requirement for people entering Canada by the end of September

Canada will likely drop the requirement for a COVID-19 vaccine for people entering Canada by the end of September, an official familiar with the matter told The Associated Press on Tuesday.

Canada, like the United States, requires foreign nationals to be vaccinated when entering the country. It is not immediately known whether the US will take a similar step by September 30.

Travelers not allowed to enter Canada are currently subject to mandatory arrival testing and a 14-day quarantine.

Random COVID-19 testing at airports may also end

The official said Prime Minister Justin Trudeau needs to give a final clue on this, but the government will likely drop the requirement as well, eliminating random COVID-19 testing at airports. Filling in information in the unpopular ArriveCan app will also no longer be required.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly on the matter.

Non-vaccinated professional athletes, such as major league baseball players, will be allowed to play in Toronto in the playoffs if the Blue Jays make it to the postseason. They are not currently allowed to cross the border into Canada.

May be unpopular Arrival app

When the new populist Conservative leader Pierre Poilievre was announced as party leader in Ottawa this month, he received most cheer from supporters when he said he would get rid of the ArrivCan app.

Dr. Andrew Morris, an infectious disease specialist at the University Health Network and Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto, as well as a professor at the University of Toronto’s Faculty of Medicine, said the need for a vaccine should have been removed long ago.

“Zero profit for ensuring people get vaccinated. It neither lays out cases nor excludes forms,” he said.
