Le gouvernement du Premier ministre Justin Trudeau, lui-même contraint au télétravail après la découverte de l'infection au nouveau coronavirus de son épouse, a cédé aux appels grandissants de plusieurs provinces à limiter l'entrée des voyageurs dans le pays.

Le Canada va fermer ses frontières "aux personnes qui ne sont pas des citoyens (canadiens) et à ceux qui ne sont pas résidents permanents au Canada", à l'exception des citoyens américains, a annoncé aujourd'hui le Premier ministre Justin Trudeau. " Je me retrouve en quarantaine mais rien de ma condition ne se compare au sort d'autres familles canadiennes dont la santé est affectée plus sérieusement". Lundi en début d'après-midi, plus de 400 cas étaient officiellement confirmés au Canada, contre 150 vendredi. Les citoyens américains et les diplomates sont également exemptés pour l'instant. D'après Justin Trudeau cité par 20 Minutes, la mesure ne les concernait pas à cause du fort "niveau d'intégration" des deux économies et de la "forte coordination" entre le Canada et les Etats-Unis.
