CALGARY (660 NEWS) – If you’re travelling through the Calgary International Airport you’ll now be required to have your temperature checked.

It’s the newest regulation from Transport Canada that and will apply for passengers coming into or departing from four of Canada’s busiest airports, including Calgary, Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal.

On June 17, the Calgary Airport Authority implemented a face-covering rule, and so far, a majority of guests and staff have been complying.

“We thank our guests and staff for playing a part in everyone’s safety, by wearing a mask in all areas of the terminal,” the airport authority said in a statement.

The temperature checks come as a pair of flights through Vancouver have been added to a public exposure list. They include flight AC311 from Montreal to Vancouver on July 24 and AC007 that left Vancouver for Hong Kong on July 26.
