Updates on COVID19.

Government of Canada has changed its global travel advisory

Submitted by nicko2 on 02 November 2021

This new advisory recognizes that many Canadians are now fully vaccinated with a COVID-19 vaccine series.  However, it also highlights that community transmission of COVID-19 continues in many countries and that those who are fully vaccinated may still be at risk of infection from the virus that causes COVID-19.

CAIDP will attend a meeting at 10am on Friday, November 5th to find out what this change means for development partners as to whether there will be a change in Global Affairs Canada's travel guidance and eligible cost flexibility for development partners.
