Why don't you read your message again and see how difficult it would be for somebody to decipher what you mean?

The Federal Covid testing upon landing and hotel isolation in Canada will start at undetermined point 'in the coming weeks'. I'd guess it will happen in around 10 days as the hotels have a strong incentive to get this going.

From Monday, Ontario Province is mandating tests for those landing in YYZ - https://www.torontopearson.com/en/healthy-airport/covid-19-testing-at-toronto-pearson. They are also 'exploring additional testing measures at Pearson International Airport and land border crossings in the coming weeks'
Sorry for not being clear.
   Pretty much I'm uncertain when I'll be able to get away whether this week or latest by early next week.
   If I know fissure it's going to be put in place by next week I would fly out some time this week and come home a few days later, vs going for a Shabbos or whatever.

Indeed.
   
   Sukkos was a breeze going, seems like they're going to make it quite a trip should one want to come now.

 Let's hope by pesach beH things settle down.
   Even though I hold Dual Citizenship, it would not be fun traveling with a family and needing to isolate for 3 days in a hotel.

Followed by an indefinite period of time in a 'facility' if tested positive.

That's crazy. For all we know they're going to lose money even after charging $2k+...

Why are they using hotels that charge $700+ a night?

Follow the rest of his rhetoric would suggest Trudeau just put that number out there to dissuade people from traveling.

The $2000 price tag likely includes the test and hypothetical sequencing if positive.

Of what value is sequencing if they’re going to be highly quarantined regardless?

Good point. Idk how I missed the obvious fact that if someone tests positive upon arrival it means their entire flight was exposed.

Trudeu implied passengers will have a choice 'quarantine in a hotel approved by Health Canada',

Worth noting CA$2000 is US$1500

If flying is not an option, maybe a one way rental car from NY to Toronto?
  Make sense? Or the pricing would be a retarded amount?

Use a National free day. They seem to run around $80-100 these days but that's cheaper than a regular rental.

Cool, great idea.
 I think I'm going to do that.
  Assuming that would work for a cross border drive one way?

Yup. Used one for a family member 2 weeks ago.
