Effective immediately, restrictions on Lost Boys-related domestic and international travel include:
- All student field school trips to studios, practicum placements, conferences, and events.

Under new requirements for air travel that take effect February 22, 2021, when a student arrives in Canada, they must take a COVID-19 test before leaving the airport and spend 3 days in quarantine at a federal government-authorized hotel. With a clear test result, the student can proceed to the quarantine site identified in their quarantine plan. Ten-days into their quarantine, the student will use a take-home test provided at their arrival in Canada. A further clear result is required before leaving quarantine at 14 days.
The list of government-authorized hotels will be available to students on February 18, 2020.
