The federal government will be announcing that anyone returning to the country through a commercial flight won't need to quarantine for 14 days

According to the federal government Canadians who fly back into the country and have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 won't need to stay in quarantine hotels.

Since February, all returning to Canada on commercial flights have had to stay at a government-mandated hotel for up three days while they await results of a COVID-19 test administered upon arrival at the airport terminal.

Those who tested negative could return home to complete a 14 day quarantine, taking a second test at home on the 10th day of isolation.

The federal government will officially announce this change to it's pandemic border later Wednesday.
