Can My Child Attend School After Returning From Travel?
Considering travelling during the winter break? If so, know the requirements for travellers upon return to Manitoba.
- If your travel is within Canada be aware of the Travel and Self-isolation Requirements for all individuals returning to Manitoba. For further information, see Self-isolation (Quarantine) for Asymptomatic Returning Travellers and Testing for Travellers.
- For domestic travellers, if you are fully immunized and two weeks have passed since your last dose at the time of your arrival, you are exempt from needing to self-isolate (quarantine) under the provincial travel order. Domestic travel exemptions include children under the age of 12, if all individuals they travelled with are fully immunized.
- If your travel is outside of Canada then the Government of Canada guidance applies. International travelers MUST follow federal self-isolation (quarantine) requirements.
- Note that unvaccinated children under 12 without symptoms and traveling with fully vaccinated parents or guardians cannot attend school, camp or daycare (among other activities) for 14 days upon return to Canada.
