Explanation of symptoms

Fever: An intermittent fever, namely one that comes and goes, meets this criterion. A one-time temperature measurement taken by mouth equal to or greater than 38.1°C also meets this criterion.

Cough: Some people, such as long-time smokers, can have a chronic cough. A usual cough does not meet this criterion, but a change in cough (e.g., increase in cough frequency or the appearance of sputum) meets this criterion.

Difficulty breathing: Some people, such as asthmatics, can have reasons related to their condition and not related to COVID-19 that explain their difficulty breathing. Any sudden difficulty breathing other than for obvious reasons meets this criterion.

Sudden loss of sense of smell or taste: A loss of sense of smell without nasal congestion, with or without a loss of sense of taste, meets this criterion, whether isolated or combined with other symptoms.

1 People who are exempt from mandatory isolation and can therefore be seen at the clinic, provided they are asymptomatic, include those who:

  • provide essential services
  • ensure the movement of essential good or people
  • must receive medical treatment within 36 hours following their entry into Canada (not related to COVID-19)
  • cross the border regularly for work (regular travel is generally defined as daily or weekly)
  • are students who cross the border regularly to go to school (one or more days a week)
  • live in an integrated cross-border community
  • are fully vaccinated, provided they are a Canadian citizen, a permanent resident of Canada, a person who is registered under the Indian Act or a protected person (refugee claimant)
  • Some travellers who are fully vaccinated (https://travel.gc.ca/travel-covid/travel-restrictions/isolation for more details)
  • Note that the government of Quebec does not impose isolation measures on people arriving from other provinces.
