OTTAWA (Reuters) – Canada will on Tuesday suspend its requirement to get a COVID-19 vaccine for domestic travel and to work in the public service, a government source said, after provinces lifted most local health restrictions .
The mandates could be reinstated later, especially in the event of a surge of a new variant, said the source, who was not authorized to speak officially. International travelers coming to Canada will still need to show proof of vaccination.
The news was first reported late Monday by the Toronto Star and the Canadian Broadcasting Corp.
