I am all in favor of people who feel the need to wear a mask doing so. I am in favor of those who feel the need to get tested for Covid prior to flying to America doing so even tho it's no longer required. I am also all in favor of people who want to make their own personal choices doing so. Some may argue this attitude is dangerous. Indeed it can be but I've learned thru personal experience that refusing to allow someone to do as they see fit can be twice as dangerous.Nothing surprises me and have little idea about right from wrong here. Darcy can say that I might change my mind if covid killed me in post #35 but I can't say the opposite.
The Canadian random Covid testing requirement for returning travellers is gone and I highly doubt it will be in effect again unless Covid infections spike significantly worldwide. The Canadian government will also be eliminating the vaccine travel mandate today. No more proof of vaccinations to travel within Canada on commercial aircraft, trains, and busesand outside Canada.I heard lift the requirement for the Socialist Republic of Canada is lifted too, at least till June 30th

I got my second booster a few weeks ago. In my area there is no rush to get a second booster. It’s available from provincial vaccine clinics and pharmacies. The only provincial mask requirements now are in hospitals and long term care facilities. I’m expecting the federal requirement for masks on aircraft to be dropped soon. By the fall, the Canadian airline industry should be free of all Covid restrictions.
Personally, I‘ve done what I thought was best for me and my pre existing medical conditions. I’ve had my two Pfizer shots and two Moderna boosters with no adverse reactions and I haven’t contracted Covid yet. I will continue to use NIOSH approved North American manufactured N-95 masks while flying on commercial aircraft. I have faith in my abilities to protect myself. I don’t have the same faith in the person sniffing,sneezing, and blowing snot next me on a four and a half hour flight to the DR from Canada.
That’s your take on what’s been said. My take is it will not be reinstated. If major Covid spikes start to occur in other countries, travellers to and from those countries may be subject to random testing again on arrival at Canadian airports and they may be required to show vax passes again. That’s the caveat behind the removal of the restrictions. No surprise there.The jab mandate is only "suspended". Those nuts are actually threatening to reinstate it in the fall with a vengeance... with a mandatory 3 doses instead of 2 to be eligible to fly.
You can’t expect an economy to go back to normal immediately after a two year lockdown. Blips will occur. Industry is putting constant pressure on the federal government to open up the economy and the Canadian government is listening as governments are in other countries.
The 3 doses to fly is pure speculation and fear mongering at this point.
Did I mention that CV19 is here, there and everywhere to stay?The National Covid tracking app was shut down yesterday by the Canadian government and the travel industry is pressuring the government to eliminate the Travel Canada app. The Covid restrictions are being eliminated despite the predictions of another significant outbreak worldwide in the fall.
And many more are now dying from vaccine consequences.............She's one who may have shaken it off yet people are still contracting it, dying from it, and then there's still "long covid". No sense in rushing and pretending that it's not still here, active and deadly
And many more are now dying from vaccine consequences.............
