The test performed is a molecular detection by PCR. This polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test for SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) looks for viral RNA in a sample of secretions from the nose (nasopharyngeal swab).
If the date of your arrival at Montreal changes, you will have to make a new registration.
If the time of your arrival at Montreal changes, but the date remains the same as originally scheduled, no changes need to be made.
Please note that it is not possible nor necessary to modify a registration.
