Important Information for US Camp Owners on Border Crossing
Similarly to last year, all operators are encouraged to apply for their work permits online prior to arriving at the border. Operators will need to book an appointment with the border crossing of their choice.
Before going to the border crossing, operators will need to have a sound quarantine plan, have a negative COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours prior to arrival, and enter all relevant information using the ArriveCAN app.
Once you arrive at the border, an officer will screen you for COVID-19 and you will be expected to take another COVID-19 test upon arrival. An officer will then go through all the required documentation to ensure everything is in order. You will also be given a COVID-19 take-home test which you will need to take near the end of your quarantine period (Day 10). If you begin to show COVID-19 symptoms or have an unsuitable quarantine plan, you will be sent to a designated quarantine facility. Otherwise, you will be cleared to go to your place of quarantine.
Everyday during your quarantine period, you will be required to use the ArriveCAN app or call 1-833-641-0343 to check-in and to report symptoms daily.
CBSA has prepared a flow chart indicating which preparations camp owners need to consider prior to arrival at the border. You can access this by clicking here.
