Federal government increasing border screening measures for travellers

The federal government has increased border screening measures for travellers especially from Iran in light of the growing number of novel coronavirus cases linked to that country.

It is now at level three, which means avoid non-essential travel.

Several of Canada's 27 confirmed cases of COVID-19 have been linked to travel to Iran or close contact with people who've recently returned from that country.

But Dr. Theresa Tam, head of the Canadian Public Health Agency, says given that the novel coronavirus has spread to at least 60 countries, all travellers should take precautions.
