Ha ha ha. I could see them pull a fast one at the last minute; our testing facilities are closed today for technical reasons. So only those who have COVID results can get past...

Also not sure of false COVID positives that can be resolved with the right "handshakes". Call me jaded but I went through the wringer last week with inane requirements and spent couple of hours getting past slimy bureaucrats at the final destination. Compared to that entry into US is a breeze, especially with Global Entry. I was home in no time upon arrival.
