Canadians with COVID-19 symptoms to be barred from domestic flights, intercity trains: PM Trudeau

Anyone showing symptoms related to the new coronavirus will now be denied to board domestic flights and trains Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced Saturday in front of his Rideau Cottage in Ottawa during an update on Canada’s response to the coronavirus pandemic.

The order will be in effect as of Monday.

“As of Monday at noon, people showing any signs whatsoever of COVID-19 will be denied boarding at all domestic flights and intercity passenger trains.”
