  1. Yup it’s looking that way. Let’s hope some of these exclusions change as more data is gained in the pilot.
  2. I know! Us too as hubby is excluded and Reyd has to remain quarantined until 2nd covid test at day 6 or 7 before he can return to school (so he could potentially cut the 14 day quarantine down by a couple days) Plus the inclusion of “permission of employer” could potentially exclude other employees.
  3. Our first cruise with Royal, Christmas 2019 on Anthem was full of so many great memories! So many pictures I could have picked but this was our first view of Anthem as we arrived at the terminal.
  4. More details emerge as they relate to conditions/restrictions. Here is an expanded list including sectors that are excluded from participating in the pilot. Link to full press release attached. https://www.alberta.ca/international-border-pilot-project.aspx#toc-3 Restrictions for specific settings Participants are prohibited from certain settings during the course of the pilot School and child care Child care programs (for example daycare, out of school care), K to 12 schools and post secondary institutions - attendees, students in schools and staff who work in these se
  5. Welcome to the boards! Not sure what region you are from in Canada, but Alberta recently announced a joint federal/provincial pilot that starts Nov 2nd at Calgary International Airport and Coutts land border crossing that would see the quarantine reduced to as little as 2 days. You can read more about this in the link below including eligibility requirements. The hope is to expand it to Edmonton in the New Year and from there to other provinces if things go well. Aside from the pilot, there are still hurdles for sure, including school and employer quarantine policies relating to travel.
  6. Alberta recently discontinued asymptomatic testing (exception being close contacts of known cases) due to a very low positivity rate. Only 7 positive COVID cases per 10,000 tests since asymptomatic testing began.
  7. Maybe I should take one for the team and book travel just to try this pilot out.
  8. I recall several rookie mistakes on our first star class cruise (which also happened to be our first RCI cruise) when it came to tipping. LOL Thankfully it all worked out with the help of members of this community.
