Alberta to pilot COVID-19 testing at border that would shorten quarantine time: 14-day self-isolation period could be chopped to about 48 hours if traveler receives negative COVID-19 test.

Would require a negative test on day 1 and a commitment to test again on day 6 or 7. Only available in Alberta and only for Canadian citizens, but I hope they expand it to other provinces and even to non-Canadians quickly.

This could be a game changer for US-Canada travel, and is long overdue IMHO.

These types of programs should be implemented around the globe to restart economies.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!
