'Successful Start' To Alberta's Rapid-Testing Pilot, But No Quick Conclusions In Sight
Nearly 2,000 travellers entering Canada by land or air through Alberta have participated in the COVID-19 testing pilot since it launched earlier this month, and Alberta Health spokesperson Tom McMillan says it's off to "a successful start." But don't get your hopes up the test will change the travel landscape anytime soon. McMillan says the project will run for up to 26 weeks – six months -- or until 52,000 participants are enrolled, whichever comes first. McMillan said the province intends to add YEG to the project in early 2021.
