Confusion at the airport: Alberta oil worker forced into quarantine hotel, co-worker gets to go home


An Alberta man who works in the United States was forced to stay at a quarantine hotel last week while his colleague with the same paperwork went straight home. Darcy Dux is an oil and gas well driller who works for a Calgary drilling company. He works two weeks on and two weeks off, commuting between his home near Stettler, Alta., and New Mexico. When Dux and a colleague with the same paperwork arrived at Calgary’s airport on Feb. 24, his co-worker got to go home but Dux was told he’d be staying at a quarantine hotel.
