    Possibly because it's less likely flights to Cozumel from Canada fall under the catagory of "essential travel"

    IN GENERAL. Far more Canadians fly south during the winter months than during the rest of the year & it's our primary destination because for most of us it's not a long trip nor that expensive. Westjet has at times had summer trips to Cozumel (if I remember right) & so did Air Canada. Westjet however cut those a few years ago & i'm not sure what Air Canada has offered. Westjet's flights usually start up in early Nov & end late April or early May.
    Those flying in or crossing the border for "essential travel" are subject to different rules than tourists get & I can't comment on what they are nor how they are enforced.

    Well, of course, the Canadian government is deeply concerned that Canadiens will spread the deadly virus among all those poor island nations who don't have enough hospital beds, ventilators, oxygen tanks, etc.

    It's to try to prevent bringing in the different new variants popping up around the world. The UK & African variants are already in Canada & the specialists expect more to creep up in other countries.

    There is also no unnecessary travel within Canada...

    It may be a jurisdictional issue; maybe the national government can only require this stuff if you cross an international border. DISCLAIMER: This is 100% conjecture.

    Actually, you have learned a valuable lesson. Yes, this is a job you went to after a previous lay-off, and it is important to remain employed. But, you have also learned that this is an employer that you really DO NOt want to be working for, beyond the immediate need.

    And, of course, no new variants will brew in Canada?
