‘Frustrating’ Border Restrictions Mean Young Kids Can’t Attend School for 14 Days Even After Short U.S. Trips

Despite the PCR test no longer being required for trips to the U.S. for less than 72 hours, children under the age of 12 who are not fully vaccinated cannot attend school for 14 days once they return, as well as avoid large group settings and public transportation. Although Health Canada said unvaccinated minors accompanied by a vaccinated adult are “exempt from quarantine,” a spokesperson says that kids are still subject to “enhanced public health measures.” Kristen Siapas, who has four young children, said “These restrictions being lifted are supposed to be a great thing, but for families that are trying to be reunited with family members across the border, it doesn’t even mean they’ll be able to spend Christmas with them without isolating for 14 days when they get back and cutting into their kids’ education.”
