Mandatory temperature screening at Canada's busiest airports

TORONTO — Starting today, July 30, mandatory temperature screening will be implemented in phases at Canada’s 15 busiest airports, including Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto-Pearson and Montreal-Trudeau, says the Canadian Air Transport Security Authority (CATSA).

On or before Sept. 30, 2020, temperature screening operations will commence at the next 11 busiest airports: St. John’s; Halifax; Quebec City; Ottawa; Toronto-Billy Bishop; Winnipeg; Regina; Saskatoon; Edmonton; Kelowna; and Victoria.

All passengers departing from these airports will be required to undergo temperature screening prior to entering security screening as an added measure to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19. They will have their temperature taken by either a temperature scanning camera on a stand that is stationed at a distance of two metres, or at a closer distance by a contactless, hand-held thermometer.
