May want to have him look around for one of the quick tests even if it means paying out of pocket.
He had a “Senior Moment” as he did not realize you can look 2 days out. Friday at 11:45am he gets his ID NOW so should have results back by 2 and hit the road whenever we want then.

General question on the ArriveCAN app, do we each do it or just 1 to include both of us?

But the screwed up part about COVID is even in the places like MLB/NHL/NFL where they are doing daily screening there are some that are positive on Wed that were clean on Tuesday.


We tried to back off our involvement to others this past week leading up to our tests. Still did a lot of normal things but attempted to keep distance when around people. Its hard with kids and being involved with regular activities again but just told them to keep their distance where they could.
Backing off is a good idea.
I know I didnít explain my thought well. Letís say I test positive 72 hours before- but that I actually contracted COVID two weeks before I went for the test. I donít think the test tells me how long Iíve had COVID? In this scenario, based on the 14-180 window I copied in the previous post, I would be better off testing now (assuming I test positive). If I wait and test 72 hours before and it comes back positive, I believe Iím stuck home (as is the whole group as Iím the driver/payer). It seems to me I should test 15 days before and if positive, I would fall in the 14-180 day exception category. If negative, I have to test again within 72 hours anyway and have to hope it comes back negative.
Iím covering our trip in the event I/we have COVID now.
I hope this makes sense.

RichA$1970 I got the ID Now test today and results back in an hour. My buddy had to go to CVS and Walgreens but got a different lab test as they are out of the ID Now tests in his area.
Anyone now how long it’s taking as it said 2-5 days which we need to cross Saturday by 2pm for mine to be good.

emma17 I'm going to respond to my own post (but I don't have an answer).
My concern is- with the rapid spread of Delta among vaccinated people (my whole group is vaccinated), there is a risk of the PCR test coming back positive in the 72 hour window. As it seems many who contract it are symptom free, I fear a surprise positive. If any of us test positive, we won't know how long we've been positive.

I found a good post from Guidedfishing from 8/20/2021, copied below. With the below in mind, are we wise to get tested now (the plan is to cross the border 9/11) so that if any of us come back positive, we would be between the 14 and 180 day window for those testing positive?

Quote:
If youíve already had COVID-19 you may continue to test positive after youíve recovered and are no longer infectious.

If you are now symptom-free, you can provide proof of a positive COVID-19 molecular test when crossing the border, instead of a negative one.

The test must have been conducted between 14 and 180 days prior to your scheduled entry into Canada
The proof of the positive result must be from an accepted type of molecular test

You must show proof of your test results even if you:

have tested negative for COVID-19 previous to the 72 hour period
have been vaccinated for COVID-19
recovered from COVID-19 and no longer test positive
recovered from COVID-19 and continue to test positive

The way I read this is you can use a positive test if you are symptom free and it is between 14 - 180 days. Honestly I would not want to test those waters, if all I had to do was get a negative test within 72 hrs. The only way I would go with this is if I could show that I continue to test positive even after the fact which I understand some folks do long after they are symptom free and recovered.

emma17 Thanks Juls.

Question on test results (I think I read answer in previous post but need confirmation). With all the Delta spread going on w vaccinated people, Iím worried me or someone in my group will test positive within 72 hours before arriving to Canada. If we are all fully vaccinated but end up w a positive test, can the person that tested positive still cross?

Juls Come on guys.....we relaxed on the rules, so you could discuss the border with mention of COVID and COVID testing.

That does not mean we have changed any rules on Political comments.

Please play by the rules so threads do not get deleted?

Can you at least....try?

Thanks, and have a great day!

Iím surprised Trudeau is not asking WTF but I hope the border stays open at least for 8 more days as Iím crossing Saturday at 0230 for Savant Lake.
Rich, we are heading into Savant next week, Thursday to Thursday. Be sure to say hi to Dock and I.
