News Canada dropping PCR COVID-19 test requirements for short trips to the U.S. SHARE ON: My Cochrane Now Staff, staff Friday, Nov. 19th, 2021 US Flag/Pixabay Fully vaccinated Canadians will soon be able to take a short trip south of the border without having to get tested for COVID-19. As of November 30th, people who have both doses and who are returning home from the United States after trips of 72 hours or shorter won’t have to show proof of a negative molecular test. Children under 12 and people with medical exemptions to the COVID-19 vaccine are also covered under the new rules. Fully vaccinated Canadians returning from trips longer than 72 hours will still have to show proof of a negative molecular COVID-19 test when they get back. The list of acceptable vaccines travelers may have when entering Canada will also be expanded come the end of the month.
