Global News published this video item, entitled “Canadian officials provide COVID-19 update as non-essential travel advisory lifted | FULL” – below is their description.

Canadian officials are expected to provide an update Friday on the country’s ongoing COVID-19 situation and vaccine rollout.

The update comes as the federal government on Thursday quietly lifted its advisory against all non-essential travel abroad that was introduced in March 2020 — as long as those travellers are fully vaccinated. The travel advisory for cruise ships remains.

The advisory was lifted the same day Prime Minister Justin Trudeau unveiled Canada’s international proof of vaccination system, which will show your name, date of birth, and COVID-19 vaccine history — including which doses you got, and when you got them.

National data also shows that COVID-19 infections are continuing to fall across most of Canada despite fears of a surge in cases following the Thanksgiving long weekend.

  • In This Story: Thanksgiving

    Thanksgiving is best known as a holiday celebrated in the United States on the fourth Thursday of November every year, usually through feasting, parades and travel to see family and friends, though celebrations were scaled back during the 2020 coronavirus pandemic.

    The roots of the modern celebration lie in settlers celebrating their arrival in the Americas in the early 1600’s. It has been a public holiday since 1941 due to federal legislation, an annual tradition in the United States by presidential proclamation since 1863 and by state legislation since the Founding Fathers of the United States.

    Traditionally, Thanksgiving has been a celebration of the blessings of the year, including the harvest. What Americans call the “Holiday Season” generally begins with Thanksgiving. The first day after Thanksgiving Day—Black Friday—marks the start of the Christmas shopping season.
