Canadian federal ministers and other officials are expected to make an announcement Wednesday regarding new measures to address the spread of COVID-19 Omicron variant.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has consulted with the premiers on additional border and travel measures that could help slow the community spreading of COVID-19. In a call late Tuesday, the first ministers discussed the Omicron variant, which is rapidly spreading around the world.
In a readout of the call, the PMO says the leaders noted the potential for a rapid and strong resurgence of COVID-19 cases in Canada that could put a strain on health-care systems.
The readout says Trudeau and the premiers agreed that the key to moving beyond the pandemic is to ensure that as many Canadians as possible, including children, get vaccinated and have access to booster shots.
