Silversand & Bob

I believe only flying home Canadians are being penalized and detained.

BobsYourUncle -- Is that $400 US? Or did you convert to Canadian (for the purpose of this forum)?
How many Canadians in his party took the Covid test?

Where did your brother take the test; most would go to the labs of a local public county Health Department and Clinic, not a private medical business or hospital like Doctors Care.

As stated, $400 US. That would be 5 something Cdn.
I don't know where he had it done, aside from some place in Eugene. I would assume he looked up and found the nearest facility that offered the test. I should ask him.
Is there a difference in where you get tested?

One in his party, he is traveling alone aside from his dog.

That's true Biden has shots for Mexico also plus the US has teamed up with others to provide billions for the poor of the world. It is wonderful to have a president in the US again.

Silver. My wife and I received a Moderna shot 3 days ago. I had side effects but worth the discomfort. Unfortunately we received no paperwork. Manitoba is thinking about some sort of card but that could take years. Governments are so useless.

Silversand:

To try to swing things back on topic here....

My brother crossed over into Canada this afternoon.
Although I havent talked to him since he arrived at his destination, I was following him via location sharing on Google maps.

By zooming in it appears he had a secondary inspection at the Canadian border too, however I don't think he was at the border for any more than 20 min - half an hour.

So in other words, no problem crossing. He does have to quarantine for 2 weeks, but he drove directly to his home 40 miles north of the border.

Hope this helps!

Will Canada be reimbursing US for shots given to Canadians in the US? Or am I missing something.

That was a negotiated trade-off to shut down Mexico's southern border with Guatemala.

Mexico has had a "supposed" border shut down for over a year, but Americans come and go at free will. No testing, no questions, enter and exit.

A constant exchange of virus from one side to the other.
