Good morning All:

With us 65+ now being vaccinated in Quebec, I find the Federal rules for land border return extremely, um, confusing in Canada. Have any Canadian returned from Florida and other southern snowbirding States, and if so, what were your experiences driving back, and what quarantine procedures were you instructed to follow upon arrival at land border crossings??

I realize that some Canadians snowbirding in Florida had gotten at least 1 vaccine shot. If any vaccinated Canadians returning by road to Canada, what were your quarantine instructions at the CBSA ?

I'm hearing that returning AIR travelers are of course required to register with a Federally-approved quarantine hotel, and obtain PCR 72 hours before arrival; however, the rules for returning-by-road Canadians are as clear as mud.

Moisheh (an over-the-land hauler): I assume that you had gotten your 1st jab long ago? Just about everyone in Quebec 70+ has had their vaccine by now.

In a couple days I may be able to offer some insight. Not a returning snowbird, but a similar situation.

My brother sold his home in Cabo and packed up everything to his pickup and cargo trailer to return to Canada.

He has so far driven from the tip of the Baja and successfully crossed the border to the US. The border crossing at Tijuana was surprisingly packed. I think he was about 3 hours in the lineup before reaching a booth. He was flagged for a secondary inspection, which only took about 15 minutes after the 1 hour delay before they got to him. So that crossing went well, including bringing a Mexican dog with him.

They gave him 2 weeks to get to Canada. No quarantine. He had a covid test before crossing, it was negative. He has not had the vaccine.

He is in Oregon now, and will head up 97 to cross at Oroville Wa, likely on Sunday.
I can report later on how that goes, if he has to quarantine etc.

They started 60+ in Florida two or three weeks ago. I have both my shots.

Glad to hear shots are going in senior Canadians! California has had 65 and plus seniors eligible since January. The AstraZeneca shots we are loaning you and Mexico should help too.

The one shot J&J is becoming more widely available now. We got ours last week.

Not so good in BC. I am in the 75 plus group and am not eligible for another week. Hopefully the pace will pick up as we seem to be getting more supply now, including the generous loan of one and a half million from the USA
