The new measure is in line with the requirement already in place for non-essential air travellers returning to Canada.

Remember that you'll also need to undergo a mandatory COVID-19 test at the airport if you're coming into the province on an international flight. International air travellers will also need to stay in a hotel until they receive their results.

In other news, the prime minister guaranteed that "tens of millions" of vaccine doses will be delivered "into the spring."

Several other vaccine candidates are also "in the approval process."
