Falling into Fall, with Some Hope
(DETM November Newsletter)
Dear Dave,

I sure hope you are getting out and enjoying some nice Fall weather. We are definitely still getting out to enjoy some nice Fall colours.
Is anyone else excited about the COVID rapid testing being tested at several Canadian airports, including Calgary? This is definitely a game-changer for air travel, even before we have a vaccine. Reducing the quarantine time when coming home from international travel from 14 to 2 days may help us all kick start travel this season. HERE is an article in the Toronto Sun about rapid testing. HERE is the article about rapid testing at YYC.
Stay safe, stay hopeful and keep in touch.
