Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says Canada may need to do more at the border to protect against the Omicron variant of COVID-19 coming to Canada.

The government has already banned foreign nationals who have recently travelled to several southern African countries.

Public Safety Minister Marco Mendicino told reporters public health advice will guide their actions.

The World Health Organization warned against the potentially dangerous impact of the Omicron variant again today, though there are still many questions about its transmissibility and the severity of illness it causes.
