Ottawa advises Canadians not to travel abroad

COVID-19/coronavirus update: March 16, 2020

Canadians who opt to travel now may face consequences such as no coronavirus-related medical insurance coverage and difficulty securing a flight home, as Ottawa has pledged to reduce the number of airports accepting inbound international flights.

The government has also advised all Canadian travellers abroad to return home and recommended that any returning travellers self-isolate for 14 days as a precaution.
