COVID-19: Requirements for fully vaccinated travellers and unvaccinated children less than 12 years of age
Submitted By Amanda Madere on Wed 11 17, 21
Important information for anyone who may be planning travel outside of the country with players under 12:

Requirements for an unvaccinated child less than 12 years of age

For 14 days after arrival, the child must not:


  • attend school, camp or day care
  • attend a setting where they may have contact with vulnerable people (e.g., long-term care facility), including people who are immunocompromised, regardless of that person's vaccination status or public health measures
  • travel on crowded public transportation that does not ensure physical distancing and masking
  • attend large crowded settings, indoors or outdoors, such as an amusement park or sporting event

Further information on what your child can and cannot do can be found on the mandatory quarantine or isolation page.

Take COVID-19 tests

The child must take COVID-19 molecular tests as instructed (see separate handout for information), unless you have evidence that the child had a positive COVID-19 test taken 14 to 180 days prior to arrival in Canada or the child is under 5 years of age.

Limit the child's contact with others

  • Stay in a place that allows the child to avoid all contact with any person that:
    • has an underlying medical condition that makes the person susceptible to complications related to COVID-19
    • has a compromised immune system from a medical condition or treatment
    • is 65 years of age or older
  • The child must remain with their fully vaccinated parent or guardian as much as possible.
  • The child must wear a mask and physically distance when in contact with non-household members.

Requirements for fully vaccinated travellers and unvaccinated children less than 12 years of age

For 14 days following entry into Canada, you and any unvaccinated children under the age of 12 who travelled with you must:

  • maintain a list of the names and contact information of each person with whom you came into close contact and a list of locations visited
  • wear a well-constructed, well-fitting mask in public settings
  • keep a copy of the following and provide them on request to the Government of Canada or government of the province or territory where you are located, or to the local public health authority:
    • all COVID-19 pre-arrival test results
    • all on-arrival COVID-19 test results, including results from random testing and results for children under 12 and
    • proof of vaccine
  • monitor for signs and symptoms of COVID-19 
    • if you start showing signs and symptoms, or test positive for COVID-19, you must immediately: 
    • isolate for 10 days
    • contact the appropriate public health authority, as specified below, and follow their instructions and
    • report within 24 hours to the Public Health Agency of Canada by calling 1-833-641-0343 (the official will provide you with additional details and instructions)
