I cant see opening one without the other ?

Default Grumblings

All my group, from young to old, will be fully vaccinated, if not already, by the time out late September/early October trip rolls around.
Recently, visiting my 97 year old mother-in-law required a self administered cotton swab test up the nose that takes 15 minutes. Thank God it's self administered and doesn't require a second person bent on reaching brain tissue.
This type of test could be available or proof of a recent test might suffice. I'm hoping for the best.

Default thanks for the update

Thanks Obabikon for this information.

It's very helpful.

I have potential trips with my son to SASK and the NWT for late summer that I had assumed would not and could not happen. My son and I have made alternate travel and fishing plans, but now I will watch carefully to see if there is a chance we could get to into Canada for these trips.

I don't have plane tickets for those Canada trip, so if the border opens, it will create a scramble.

I believe the border will be open this summer. Fairly soon.

So much so that I am finishing up my staffing as I type this and will be fully operational in less than a week.

That's all I'm saying

Canadians can currently fly to the US but Americans can't fly to Canada at the moment. So there is precedent for an unilateral opening.

I too have been concerned on how the Provincial reopening plans/phases would affect the border reopening. I would assume the feds can overrule the provinces if push came to shove? or they would try to work out a compromise. As far as the US requiring a test to return. The CDC guidelines allow rapid tests & results as long as they are verified thru a provider. You can get them in the US and bring the test kit into Canada with you. See the CDC guidelines. I know itís still a looong shot(maybe 20%) but I am still holding out hope for the border to be safely reopened by July 8th.

Canadians have been able to fly into the US for many months now.

Self-administered tests for return to the US would still require a telehealth visit with a provider affiliated with the manufacturer of the test. Are you aware of a manufacturer that also offer the telehealth services? And if so, where's the best place between Red Lake and Fort Frances that would have an internet connection good to conduct a telehealth visit via video?
