Honor System

So I did my Zoom COVID testing. It’s the strangest thing. You do the test in front of the “tele nurse.” Then she says goodbye and logs off. You wait 15 minutes without being observed by anybody, photograph the test next to your passport, and email the photo to the testing service. Which begs the question of why anybody needed to observe you in the first 5 minutes when you can easily swap your test for anybody else’s in the last 15 minutes.

I appreciate the great level of trust but can anybody explain the point of this exercise? Other than charging me $30CAD for the privilege of participating?

We are all participating in a weird charade for absolutely no purpose.
