I received an email from the US State Department with the subject line: Canada Travel Advisory: Level 3: Reconsider Travel,  August 31, 2021

The email went on to warn U.S. citizens to “reconsider travel to Canada due to COVID-19.” I thought it was a joke because it really should be Canada warning their citizens not to visit the United States as our case numbers are much higher and our vaccination rates are much lower.

Keep in mind, only 52.7% of eligible Americans (age 12 and older) are fully vaccinated compared to 66.8% of Canadians. According to Google, Canada’s total COVID cases in the last 14 days (Aug 17–30) is 40,339 with 214 deaths. Meanwhile the United States over this same time period has 2,167,002 total cases and 16,837 deaths. I realize the US is 10 times the population but still, these numbers don’t even come anywhere close to the U.S.

Another thing to note is that the USA has the gall to keep the land border closed to Canadians but Canada has opened up theirs to vaccinated Americans. Sorry to say but I have a feeling Canada is about to close the curtain and I can’t say I would blame them.

Here are the details of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Level 3 Travel Health Notice for travel to Canada. Read the country information page.

The CDC advises “if you decide to travel to Canada:

    if you think Canadians think we’re rude, how about how nice we treat folks that come to our southern border.

    make any sense to you.

    The USA had tested about 1,753 people per million, where Canada has only tested about a 1,000 per million. So we are tested almost twice as many people.

    Tests are based on people feeling any of the various/outlined symptoms. It’s just as easy in Canada to get a test, but if they dont have any symptoms they dont get tested. There is no mandatory testing in any of the 2 countries.
