In addition, Trudeau announced $10 billion to help businesses across Canada affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The federal government is taking "increasingly aggressive steps to keep Canadians safe" by denying entry to anyone who is not a Canadian citizen or permanent resident, with some exceptions, including diplomats, air crews, and immediate family of citizens, and USA citizens.

The decision to shutter global air travel began with U.S. President Donald Trump's decision to ban travelers from Europe for 30 days.

"We have a simple message for all countries: test, test, test", he said.

Trudeau said he understands the border closure will alarm residents and said that Canadians who are now abroad-and who are being strongly encouraged to return home immediately-will receive assistance to return home.

Mr Trudeau said air operators will be "formally mandated' to prevent symptomatic travellers from boarding flights to Canada".

On Monday, Trudeau said advice regarding border restrictions have changed since last week, where public health officials were largely pushing social distancing measures.

All flights to Canada will be directed to one of four major airports in the country, which are located in Calgary, Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver to handle the testing. For now, he added, Canadian domestic flights as well as those from the US, the Caribbean and Mexico would not be affected.

Trudeau also said Canadians not in the country should come home immediately and isolate themselves for 14 days once they arrive to mitigate the spread of the coronavirus.

Some visitors who flew into Canada over the weekend told reporters they had not undergone any screening.

How Canadians will receive funds will be announced in the coming days.

"It's time for you to come home", he said.

Trade will continue with other countries, Trudeau added. So call your friends, check in with your family. New arrivals will also be required to acknowledge that they're being asked to self-isolate for two weeks. We work with physicians, residents and medical students on issues that matter to the profession and the health of Canadians.

"All Canadians, as much as possible, should also stay home", he told a news conference outside his home, where he and his family are self-isolating after his wife Sophie tested positive for COVID-19.

Tam said Canada will be looking to make sure the USA institutes "certain measures" to limit the spread of the virus within its own borders, and would be monitoring the situation there as well.
