The Calgary International Airport and the Coutts border crossing announced on Thursday that they will be the first in Canada to replace the manditory 14-day quarantines for international travelers, using rapid testing. The pilot project will be in partnership with the federal government and travel industry. This could be an important step towards reopening Canada and is a part of Alberta's Recovery Plan.
With the project, after the rapid test comes back negative, passengers have to spend 14 days in Alberta, wear masks in public and provide daily symptom checks.
This project could make a huge impact in parts of Canada that have been hit hard by COVID-19 and rely on the travel and tourism industries.
