Our border with the US opens to Americans who have been fully vaccinated with Canadian Approved vaccines 14 days prior to arrival on Aug 9. This is for recreational purposes . It opens to the rest of the world with the same requirements on Sept 7.

Which vaccines are approved? I had the Pfizer, my brother had the Johnson & Johnson and my kids had the Moderna.

BTW, many Americans refuse to show proof of vaccination because they say it impedes their "freedom". So I presume that means no travel to Canada for them!

Pfizer and Moderna are approved. I had Pfizer for my second shot and hubby had Moderna and my son too. Truthfully, I am not sure about Johnson&Johnson but my guess is , yes.

True, at the moment no proof no travel here, they will be turned back at the border.

I wonder if those people will react with the same screaming tantrums they have here in the US when some poor teenager at McDonald's asks them to put on a mask 🤣

That might get one arrested at the border . 
 

A funny/not funny story of our own travels long before Covid. So, my son is an avid NASCAR fan and we took him to the Michigan raceway. ( I think he was 9 then)The race ended up being rained out so we had to go back home and then come back the next day for the race but as we were leaving the race track that day we got stuck in mud past our axles and had to be pushed out. And we had no time to clean the mud off the outside of our van before crossing the border again the next day. So we got flagged for secondary. They asked us to leave wallets, purses, cell phones everything in the car. We roll into secondary and they asked us our last name. The border guard rolls her eyes and said you couldn’t make it easy for me could you. To which I replied because I am a smart ass ,”well kind of late to change my name to Artyomov “and rolled my eyes back. By now my son is distraught and goes into meltdown screaming , “ I am a Canadian have rights you know.” I quickly cover his mouth and he screams louder,”  mom stop you’re going to smother me !” 🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄 No, but at that moment would have liked to. 
 

Long story short don’t mess around at border crossings and we got to the race 10 minutes before the flag. 
 

Really, I am surprised we got back in 🤣 Yeah, don’t pull humour or hissy fits at the border . People can get arrested.

But your son was 9.

These freedom screaming Americans are fully grown adults. They just choose to act like spoiled toddlers.

I might be willing to pay money to watch footage of them getting turned away at the border, throwing a screaming fit and subsequently being arrested. I'll make popcorn.

Me too.🤣

 

I taught my son you need to respect the laws and the people of the country you enter whether you agree or not and I expect people coming here to return the favour.

A double order of popcorn then!

I often wonder how these freedom screamers would handle it if their children reacted with a screaming, profanity laden tantrum when being told to take out the trash or clean their room. I hope their kids do react that way and then scream "FREEDOM!!" if their parents try to discipline them lol. It would serve them right.

Yeah, I'm triggered by those people, I admit it!

My son knows if this ever happened a big dose of this was headed his way.

I'm perturbed because my state had been doing so well they removed all Covid restrictions. Then the Delta variant started surging among the vaccine refusers. So now we have to go backwards. I was looking forward to actually enjoying all my neighborhood, city and state has to offer but now I can't. And more people are dying unnecessarily. I don't want anyone else to die and I don't want the restrictions to go on indefinitely.

I actually thought I wouldn't need to order anymore masks. Welp, I had to place another order due to this surge. 

So frustrating when there's a great solution but it can't work if people don't use it. 

PS: I get there are those who use this forum who don't want the vaccine for various reasons. These are my thoughts and opinions. They're not directed at anyone on this forum.

 I’m not sure how I feel about this one mostly nervous . My husband is going to a Blue Jays game the first weekend they are home. Now the seating will be 2 metres apart and masked but still.

I have plans to travel out of state to go to a soccer game and visit friends in September. Unfortunately the state I will be traveling to has the third largest uptick in new Covid cases currently. I told my friend if it's still that bad I will not go.

Ever since our state opened up about 4 weeks ago, we’ve gone from - few hundred cases a day to over 2000 a day now.  
 

My first instinct was to buy a bit extra  toilet paper, make sure we’re good on masks, hand soap,  hand sanitizer etc.  🤷‍♀️
 

First world problems but I’m not wiping my butt with a coffee filter again.

What's scary is I was doing all those things (hand washing, hand sanitizer, checking my blood oxygen and temperature, wearing a mask, staying distant from others) and I got Covid anyway. It's because the virus isn't caused by lack of hand washing. It's caused by breathing it in. I caught it in my own home, from my nephew. And I assure you, I do not cuddle or rub up on my 21 year old nephew! His room was downstairs and mine was upstairs and we didn't share a bathroom. The only time we were occasionally in the same room was when we both were in the kitchen fixing food for ourselves. And I still got it from him.

That's why I continued to wear my mask inside stores and while picking up take out, even though those regulations were lifted for vaccinated people. I know I can breathe in someone else's breath and catch one of the variants that way.

I almost want to just go ahead and get the darned Delta variant, just to get it over with. I already successfully fought off Covid once without being vaccinated. I feel like I could fight it off again. And hopefully not get anyone else sick.

I sure hope this latest surge is over with soon and enough people choose to get vaccinated so we can get back to the way things were a month or so ago!

I never stopped wearing my mask indoors in public places. I've never gotten COVID and I think I can say that pretty confidently, as I was getting tested regularly (at least weekly) for most of the pandemic. My natural, more isolated status actually protected me. Let's see how long I can make it last.

I haven't commented on this thread in a while but I've been reflecting more on how my life has changed. In most ways for the better, actually.

Here in Ontario masks indoors are still mandatory. But even when that goes I will be keeping mine on indoors for a long time.

Our mask mandate got reinstated.

I never took mine off indoors unless I was actively eating in a restaurant.  Even though I'm vaccinated.  I will continue to do so until the cases reach a negligible level.  I mean, why not?

Here we have been wearing masks since April 2020.

Agree. Never took the mask off. No Covid, no colds, no flu,etc. Still seeing people eating in restaurants, shopping etc without masks. Go figure. It's almost like a badge to prove they're vaccinated.

I don't feel comfortable eating indoors in public, however I will eat at a restaurant with outdoor seating. That I'm okay with. Otherwise, it's takeout for me.

    • 5 Things People Who’ve Been Mentally Abused Do
      Do you know how common mental abuse is? According to The National Center for Biotechnology Information, 80 percent of the population has experienced some form of abusive relationship and behavior. However, despite how frequent it is, emotional abuse is still hard to spot. Unlike physical abuse, mental abuse doesn’t leave any visible scars; instead, it affects someone’s behavior, mindset, and mentality. This means some people deny they’ve been mentally abused, and others may not even recognize the toxic behavior. So, whether you’re reading this to be able to recognize emotional abuse in others or recognize it in yourself, these a few things people who’ve been mentally abused do are sure to help you be more empathetic and kinder.

    • 5 Polarity Secrets to Attracting Love that Makes you Magnetic AF
      In this video, I'm going to show you the 5 most powerful ways to create polarity in order to attract love. Think of it like a magnet. If you have a magnet, it is going to attract, but also repel based on its polarity. If you have a positive and a positive and you put them together, guess what's gonna happen? They're going to repel each other. Same with a negative and negative. But when you have a positive and a negative, they clink right like this. The key to attracting love is embodying your own sense of polarity, which really is the authenticity of who you really are, letting go of what you are not so that you can attract love easier than ever. These are things that completely transformed my own life.
