  • Global News published this video item, entitled “Global National: June 21, 2021 | Canada loosens travel restrictions for fully vaccinated residents” – below is their description.

    In tonight’s top story: The federal government has announced that fully vaccinated Canadians and permanent residents can soon enter the country by land or air without having to quarantine — as long as they test negative for COVID-19.

    David Akin has the details on the government’s plan to ease travel restrictions.

    And Robin Gill reports on travel obstacles for some cross-border Canadian families who still won’t be able to reunite despite the loosened measures.

    On the vaccination front, some Canadians slated for a second dose of the Pfizer COVID19 vaccine, in the coming week, will instead be offered Moderna.

    The news comes after the federal government announced it was facing a shipment delay. As Jamie Mauracher reports, it has again prompted the question: is mixing safe and effective?

    Some researchers say the Delta variant, or B.1.617.2 sub-lineage, which was first discovered in India late last year, is presenting some new symptoms.

    As Eric Sorensen reports, British researchers say the variant symptoms are looking like a “bad flu” in younger people, with the number one symptom being headache.

    Plus, Tokyo Olympics are set to allow 50% venue capacity, Olympics organizers said on Monday. It’s a decision that cuts against the recommendation of medical experts who said holding the event without fans was the least risky option.

    Redmond Shannon reports.
