Tourism Leaders Urge End To Extensive PCR On-Arrival Testing

The Canadian Travel and Tourism Roundtable is calling on the federal government to redeploy PCR tests used for on-arrival testing to community use, and return to randomized on-arrival testing for surveillance purposes. The group points out that the positivity rate of fully vaccinated travellers entering Canada on a relative basis is extremely low when contrasted against the significantly higher positive rate in the community.
