Canada: Calls grow to scrap on-arrival PCR test for travelers

Global News shows that Canadians returning home from trips abroad must show proof of a negative PCR COVID-19 test to re-enter the country. But obtaining a PCR test can sometimes be difficult.

The measure includes Canadians re-entering the country from trips abroad that were less than 72 hours.

The policy was reinstated in an effort to blunt the latest wave of COVID-19 driven by the highly-contagious Omicron variant. 

But now that the variant is ripping through Canada, calls are growing louder to scrap the requirement as tests overwhelm the system. Abigail Bimman reports.
