Greetings again from Hitachinaka, two hours north of Tokyo (Rob), and from Kathryn, still in Waterloo.
Kathryn and Julia did not get their COVID test results back in the 72 hours required by the Japanese government as Rob did last month. Things have really changed in the last two weeks as tests done in Waterloo are sent to Toronto for processing, and a testing backlog has developed.
So, they will try again. Tests will be on Monday, October 12th, with the flights to Japan rebooked for Thursday.
This time, in order to avoid the Toronto volume of tests, they will get tests done in London, where there are fewer problems now.
Thank you for your prayers and notes of encouragement as we all try to get back home to Japan.
Rob & Kathryn
