Vaccination Rates and Travel Restrictions Could Have Effect on Grey Cup

According to TSN’s Dave Naylor, the CFL’s postseason could be affected by vaccination status. As of now, and through November, all someone in Canada has to do is test negative to travel.

But that changes in December.

“…travellers departing from Canadian airports, and travellers on VIA Rail and Rocky Mountaineer trains, will be required to be fully vaccinated in order to travel. For travellers who are in the process of being vaccinated, there will be a short transition period where they will be able to travel if they can show a valid COVID-19 molecular test within 72 hours of travel, but that transition period will end on November 30,”

reads the Canadian government’s website

The CFL doesn’t require their players or employees to be vaccinated, but allows them to make an “informed decision” on whether or not to get the shot.

But now depending on who plays in East and West Finals, and the Grey Cup, all scheduled for the first 2 weekends of December, there’s a real chance that outcomes could be determined by vaccination status. Since the unvaccinated will not he able to travel with their teams.
