Covid-19 Information

Here is a list of things to double check are completed before crossing the border into Canada. 

If all things are not completed you may be turned away at the border.  It is very important to have a paper or digital copy of your vaccination documentation. We recommend having a paper copy of your proof of vaccines and negative covid test to avoid any issues.  One guest only had a digital copy and had trouble pulling it up at the border to show the agent and this held him up about half an hour.  

There has not really been any delays at the border.  You can check border wait times here: https://www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/bwt-taf/menu-eng.html

Border Crossing Requirements

  • Must have received the full series of a Health Canada approved COVID-19 vaccine or a combination of approved vaccines (Pfizer, Moderna, Astra Zeneca, Johnson & Johnson) 
  • Must have received your last dose at least 14 days prior to the day you enter Canada
  • Upload information into the ArriveCAN app  (this app is free and secure)  
  • All information must be inputted into the ArriveCAN app within 72 hours prior to arrival in Canada. 
  • The app will ask you to input contact information for you and the people you are travelling with, purpose of trip, date of arrival, port of entry, proof of vaccination, and your quarantine plan.
  • For the quarantine plan, input the location where you will be staying while in Canada (i.e. the lodge). 
  • Must have a negative COVID-19 molecular* test taken within 72 hours prior to arrival view accepted tests  Antigen tests are not accepted.
  • Must be asymptomatic upon arrival 
  • Upon arrival, the border officer will ask you for your ArriveCAN receipt, proof of vaccination, negative COVID-19 test results and other typical documentation

If information is not entered into the ArriveCAN App prior to arriving at the Canada border, processing time is up to 30 minutes, or you may be turned away. We ask that all guests have all of their travel information entered into the app or website before arriving at the border to speed things up for everyone. If travelling as a group and crossing in the same vehicle you can enter everyone in together on one phone.  There is an option to add another traveler. About the ArriveCAN App
ArriveCAN is a free and secure app. The Government put out a statement warning people of scam apps pretending to be ArriveCAN asking for payment information.  Please click link to read more information on the ArriveCAN app. Click here for more information on the ArriveCAN app.

Here is a link to a video we made to walk guests through entering your information into ArriveCAN.

Please enter this address for quarantine location:

Delaney Lake Lodge

30 Peter Street

Kenora, ON P9N 3R2

What constitutes as a proper quarantine plan?
The quarantine plan is mandatory for anyone entering Canada, regardless if they are fully vaccinated.

  • Quarantine locations should be your vacation destination- you will enter in Delaney Lake Lodge information
  • Guests who are randomly selected for a test at the border and test positive will be isolated right away in a private cabin and flown out to travel home ASAP.  You will be able to return to the USA to complete your 14 day quarantine.

What types of COVID-19 pre-arrival tests will be accepted by CBSA?

These tests are considered acceptable molecular tests - antigen tests are not accepted*:

  • PCR - Polymerase chain reaction
  • RT-PCR – reverse transcription real time PCR
  • Quantitative PCR (qPCR)
  • Nucleic acid test (NAT) or Nucleic acid amplification test (NAATs)
  • Reverse transcription loop-mediated isothermal amplification (RT-LAMP)
  • Isothermal amplification
  • Droplet digital PCR or digital droplet PCR (ddPCR)
  • Transcription-mediated amplification (TMA)
  • RNA (Ribonucleic acid)
  • Ct (cycle threshold)
  • CRISPR
  • Sequencing
  • Next generational sequencing (NGS) or whole genome sequencing (WGS)
  • Oxford Nanopore sequencing (LamPORE)
  • Detection of the N gene
  • Detection of Orf1a/b
  • Detection of the S gene
  • Detection of the E gene
  • Detection of the RdRp gene

 These tests use methods such as a nasopharyngeal (NP) swab, nose swab, or saliva sample. At this time, proof of having a vaccine will not replace a negative test result. It is very important to plan ahead of time where you will get your pre arrival covid test.  You must ensure that you will be able to get your test results back asap.  Some places have a 3-5 turn around time on test results and they will prevent you from entering Canada. They are being very time specific on the 72hrs for the negative covid test.  Be sure that you plan to cross the border within 72hrs of taking your test.  People have been turned away (not our guests) for having a test that was 20 min past the 72hrs.  In a pinch, there is now a rapid testing place in International Falls.  You can get test results in as little as 15 minutes (average 30-45min).  Visit www.covidquickresults.com or call or text 320-250-4035.

Here are links that will help find a testing site:

 What if I am randomly selected for a Covid test at the border?

If a guest is randomly selected for a Covid test at the border we ask that you call to let us know right away.  The test will be a home test kit, not a rapid test given at the border.  The home test kit is provided via Switch Health.  Here is a link to a instructional video on how to do your home test kit.  https://switchhealth.ca/en/individuals/home-kits/covid-test/

These test need to be completed within 24hrs of crossing the border and shipped via Purolator. You can take the test using your phone with a nurse online once you arrive in Fort Frances (recommended) or you can wait and take the test on arrival at the lodge if that is within 24hrs of arriving into Canada.  If you take the test in Fort Frances there is now a Purolator drop box at North Air Taxi (600 Scott St, Fort Frances, ON P9A 1H6).  If you wait until you arrive at the lodge we will have to travel to Kenora to drop off your test. If possible please take the covid test in Fort Frances.

  What is Different At The Lodge?

Masks are mandatory to wear on the float plane flight from Nestor Falls and when entering the dining room at the lodge.  Once you are seated at your table you may remove your mask.  If you need to leave the table you must put your mask back on.  Please ask for assistance in the tackle shop, looking at clothing, if you need ice and drinks or coffee. Although we LOVE having our guests come into the kitchen and staff area of the lodge, this will be a staff only areas due to Covid-19.
