Canada to mandate temperature checks for airline passengers, Trudeau says

OTTAWA, June 12 (Reuters) - Canada will make it a requirement to take airline passengers’ temperatures before they fly and anyone with a fever will not be allowed to travel, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on Friday.

“Temperature checks will not be detecting people with COVID-19,” Trudeau said in a news conference. “It’s an extra layer of safety to encourage those who might feel sick to stay home.”
