Looks like the program ended. This is sad and dissappointing!

Perhaps but not entirely unexpected as the original press release said it was to be a month long study starting 3 Sep. so actually ran far longer than originally planned.

In a major finding, an interim report from McMaster Health Labs finds that rapid COVID-19 tests undertaken at Toronto Pearson Airport support the call for reduced quarantime times.

McMaster Health Labs (MHL) on Tuesday released its Canadian International COVID-19 Surveillance Border Study interim report, which was conducted with support from the Government of Canada and in partnership with Air Canada and the Greater Toronto Airports Authority. Independent analysis of the Border Study's interim results has been conducted by the study team; additional analysis and full results are expected to be shared in January 2021.

"Interim results from the border study support a test and reduced quarantine approach such as that being piloted in Calgary," said Dr. Vivek Goel, co-principal investigator of the study, professor at the University of Toronto and a former CEO of Public Health Ontario. "Testing upon arrival with a follow-up test to catch later positive results could provide a reasonable path forward to help keep borders and the economy open while maintaining public safety."

Would be great if this can get implemented sooner, rather than later.

Saying this from isolation in Ottawa....having arrived at YYZ two days ago.
