Coronavirus: Travellers to pay more than $2000 for mandatory hotel quarantine, Trudeau says

Speaking to reporters outside Rideau Cottage in Ottawa on Friday, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced that starting next week, all international passenger flights must land at the following four airports: Vancouver, Toronto, Calgary and Montreal. Trudeau said in addition to the pre-boarding test Canada already requires, the government will be introducing mandatory PCR testing (nasal swab testing) at the airport for people returning to Canada. The move to require a hotel stay upon return would discourage vacations as people would not want to have to quarantine at a hotel at their own expense upon return.
