What's the point of testing at the border if you have to quarantine anyway and have a recent negative PCR?

The tests aren't done at the border.

I mean the tests given to you at the border. It's not like testing negative on those shortens the quarantine.

Then what? They'll deport you? You're quarantining anyway.

FTFY, and I think that answers your question.

A positive test forces household members to quarantine and resets the clock

Isn't Canada super strict with quarantine?

That somewhat/technically makes sense considering you might have been exposed shortly before crossing the border.

Halfway in between the American free-for-all and Asian hotels & bracelets - they have check-ups by private security companies and stiff fines.

To some extent, but maybe they wanted another layer of protection against people who break the rules.

Or more likely, even if it doesn't accomplish much it makes people feel like the government is doing something...

True, but amazing how little actual enforcement there was until January. They could have quadrupeled their tickets just in one neighborhood

Travelers at land borders are (as of now) not charged for the testing
