The Canadian government has lifted an advisory against non-essential travel to Mexico in light of waning cases of the swine flu, the Canadian Press reported. The government says Canadians travelling to Mexico are no longer at risk because the virus has been spreading across Canada for some time. Quarantine officers will no longer meet every direct flight entering Canada from Mexico, and the Public Health Agency has stopped distributing health alert notices to airline passengers. However, the Canada Border Services Agency will continue to visually check travellers for signs of illness.
