Alberta reduces quarantine times for travellers with coronavirus testing pilot.
There is good news for international travellers arriving at Calgary International Airport and the Coutts Land Border Crossing. Their quarantine period is likely to be shortened, thanks to the coronavirus testing pilot.
Yes. Alberta will be the first province in Canada to reduce quarantine time for incoming travellers. It is now offering coronavirus tests at certain airports and land border crossings.
However, travellers will have to fill an online application form five days before arrival to register for the pilot. They will not have to undergo the full 14-day quarantine period if they prove negative for the virus.
The Alberta webpage says that all other international travellers returning to Canada will have to follow the mandatory quarantine period. Travellers applying for reduced quarantine should, however, arrive with an adequate 14-day quarantine plan in place.
Presently, this facility is only available at the Calgary International Airport and the Coutts Land Border Crossing.
This pilot program is soon expected to expand to other locations as well. Travellers arriving at other airports may not enjoy this facility. According to CBC, the Edmonton International Airport is expected to join the pilot program in early 2021.
People leaving Alberta less than 14 days after arrival to another Canadian province will also not be eligible. They can, however, leave Canada from Alberta within 14 days’.
