Many European airlines are no longer allowing passengers to board flights with masks that are not either surgical, NON-VALVE FFP2, FFP3, or N95. This means that most cloth masks are not acceptable protection for these airlines.
Canadian airlines are allowing passengers to wear cloth masks, however they are NOT allowing ventilated masks.
Please ensure that you are purchasing a NON-VALVE mask for air travel Internationally or within Canada.
Here are some safe picks for worldwide or local traveling:
Those traveling Internationally and within Canada are currently required to provide proof of being fully vaccinated against Covid-19. Though there are exemptions, it is a safe assumption that your vaccine passport will need to be shown.
Preparing your vaccine passport ahead of time will prevent you further stress on your already hectic traveling day. Your vaccine status can be accessed through the Government of Canada website.
You will need to select your province, and securely log into your provincial health services account in order to access your vaccine passport.
we highly recommend that you PRINT A COPY and TAKE A SCREENSHOT for your travels. Your vaccine passport is accessible online through your phone or tablet, but will not be available when there is no access to Wi-Fi, you are out of cellular range, or if your phone is dies. A physical copy of your vaccine passport will provide you peace of mind in case of unforeseen technical complications.
WHEN RETURNING TO CANADA:
For those returning to Canada, you must use the ArriveCAN mobile app or sign in on a computer to enter your proof of vaccination, quarantine and travel information. You'll need to submit your information within 72 hours before your arrival to Canada.
Be sure to check that you have no signs and symptoms of Covid-19 before you travel. According to the Government of Canada, you will not be allowed to board your flight if you present symptoms of Covid-19 unless:
* it has been at least 15 days since you first started showing signs or symptoms of COVID-19, or
* you present a medical certificate confirming that your symptoms aren't related to COVID-19
Signs and symptoms of Covid-19 can differ from person to person, but it is suggestable to consider re-scheduling your plans if you:
* feel fatigued or weak
* have muscle or body aches
* experience new loss of smell or taste
* have a persistent headache
* experience abdominal pain, diarrhea and vomiting
* are feeling very unwell
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, we sympathize with you needing to reschedule your carefully planned trip and hope that you feel better soon.
