COVID-19: Quarantine periods for some Canadians at CFB Trenton coming to an end Friday

Quarantine periods for Canadians who were repatriated amid the spread of COVID-19 in China are coming to an end.

Canadians who arrived at the Canadian Forces Base in Trenton, Ont., on Feb. 7 will see their quarantine period end on Friday, according to an emailed statement from Health Canada on Thursday evening.

The 14-day quarantine period for those who arrived at the base on Feb. 11 is “anticipated” to end on Feb. 25.

The government can provide transport to Toronto Pearson International Airport “to help facilitate their return home.” People can also arrange to be picked up in Trenton.

While it is unclear when exactly the repatriated Canadians will leave the base, everyone will leave with a “travel plan” and arrangements to follow up with their local public health agencies.
