No one knows what will happen. That said, most state mandates I've seen, so far, have been mandatory quarantines, not outright bans. Thus, as a snowbird, you could travel down, quarantine for 14 days, and then go about your business.

It gets kinda murky but, generally, the Supreme Court has held,under the "Protections and Immunities" clause that states cannot prevent one from entering, or leaving, a state. They seem to be allowed to institute the quarantine period if you remain in the state, but only if they have the same requirement of their residents who are returning from outside the state. As stated above, it's a murky part of the 14th Amendment and the Articles of Confederation. Hope this helps.

Would those rules apply to a Canadian, if they could get across the border, I wonder? If a state had a 14 day "entering to stay" quarantine rule, would it be applied to anyone entering, from out of state or country?
Or, are we (Canadians) more or less banned from entry?


Mike. Comments are anecdotal or personal opinions, and worth what you paid for them.

We, as cdn's, have no expectation of privacy any more in USA. The 14 day rule would be enforced--and they might just tell you that you are not welcome to stay at all.

US / Canadian border rules are described here. Borders are remain closed to nonessential motorized travel. Canadians can fly to US. Americans not allowed to fly to Canada.

I think you’ll find that once a State of Emergency is declared all those rules go out the window for the duration.

Florida is all about the money they won't stop the cash flow............ but we will as until we feel safe we are not going to team up and play cards, games, potlucks or dances it seems to be a virus breeding thing. If you go have a shot of Clorox for us.

I can't imagine Florida would close down its borders. When the Pandemic first hit, there were COVID-19 checkpoints on I-95 and I-4. The checkpoint on I-95 is gone now, not sure about I-4. Even then, people weren't denied entry, just told to quarantine. That was before Florida was hit hard.

Florida's economy can't handle losing all the money that Snowbirds bring into the state. It's very unlikely the state would block snowbirds entering, even if they could.
